|Chest, Shoulders, Triceps
Decline Barbell Pullover Instructions
- Position your legs securely in the padding of the decline bench and lay back.
- Grip the barbell as you would for a close grip bench press.
- Lower the barbell to where your elbows are roughly 90-degrees.
- The bar should be at or just above your chest.
- While keeping your arms in that fixed position, move the weight behind your head in a semicircular motion until the bar is behind your head, parallel with the floor.
- You should feel a strong stretch in the lat.
- Don't beyond your range-of-motion. Your mobility/flexibility will improve through performing this exercise consistently over time.
- Return to the starting position by contracting the lats and performing the opposite semicircular motion.
- The arms do not initiate the movement. They are levers for your lats.
- Arms are passive.
