Step-by-step instructions

1. Set an adjustable bench to an incline of no more than 30 degrees, or rest a flat bench on a weight plate or mat to tilt it slightly. Grasp the bar just outside shoulder width and arch your back so there’s space between your lower back and the bench. Pull the bar out of the rack and lower it to your sternum, tucking your elbows about 45 degrees to your sides. When the bar touches your body, drive your feet hard into the floor and press the bar back up.
