Great Chest Workouts: How To Do The Isometric Chest Hand Press

A Chest Exercise That You Can Do Anywhere



Okay. Your goal is to develop a powerful and toned chest. You know the importance of regular workouts such as the bench press, flyes, dips, etc. to give your muscles the exercise they need to grow stronger and more toned. But what if you're pressed for time and can't get to the gym? Or what about those times when the gym maybe closed or you otherwise don't have access to a fitness center? What then? How do you keep in shape? Well, in this article I'm going to discuss a simple yet effective chest exercise that you can do just about anywhere and anytime. This exercise is called the isometric hand press.

Performing the Isometric Chest Hand Press

The only equipment you'll need for this exercise is your body. You can either sit or stand when performing the isometric chest hand press. Raise your arms in front of you at chest level. Place your palms together. Now, use your chest muscles to push your palms together as hard as you can. Squeeze your chest muscles while you do this. Hold this position for twenty seconds then release. Rest about ten seconds then repeat the action for a total of fifteen reps. I recommend getting in at least four sets of this exercise. The isometric chest hand press emphasizes exertion on the chest so it is very convenient for hitting that target area. Since they're easy to perform and can be done virtually anywhere or anytime, the isometric chest hand press is definitely an exercise that you will want to add to your routine.

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