Sitting on a bench, or chair, making sure it’s stable, so it doesn’t slip from under you, have your legs extended out in front of you, knees slightly bent.
With your chest out and midsection firm, have your hands either side of your backside holding onto the bench – fingers facing frontwards.
Place your backside to the edge of the bench, lowering your body downwards, bending your elbows.
Push back up and lower yourself down again. Do this for the required amount of reps. At the end of the set raise yourself back up and onto the bench.
– If you suffer from wrist and shoulder issues avoid this exercise.
– If you’re using a chair you can always back the chair up against a wall – it must be stable to perform this exercise.
