Step 3: Return to resting position in controlled manner.


More

Tips: The more narrow the grip the more the tricep and posterior shoulder gets worked, compared to when it is wider the more the chest and anterior shoulder gets worked. Don't let the elbows flare out as it will put unwanted stress on the deltoids and can cause joint pain. Keep the glutes squeezed to ensure a rigid body.

Link™ to Exterior: Link™ in hands at shoulder width -1
