How To Do Pec Decks

Peck Deck Is An Intense Exercise for the Chest and Shoulders



Although benching is by far the most popular chest building exercise, the pec deck is a very effective workout for developing a great chest. It's also easy to perform and very safe for beginners.

How to do the pec deck exercise

You'll need a stationary pec deck machine. Sit down with your back braced against the back support. Grasp the hand grips. Your palms should be extended away from your body. Now using your chest muscles move your arms in an arc motion until your palms are facing each other. Squeeze your chest muscles together. Then bring your arms back to the starting position. This is one rep. You should feel some stretch in your pectoral muscles while this happens. It's important to keep your back straight while doing this exercise.

The pec deck is an exercise that doesn't take a lot of time to master. It is a good way for beginners to develop upper body strength. As you become stronger, increase the weights and reduce the rest period between sets. There is also a one hand pec deck exercise that can place emphasis on one side of the chest at a time. You would grasp one hand bar and in the same motion as described above, bring your arm around to the front of your body.

That's all for this article. Look forward to more articles on my Great Chest Workouts website.
