For this workout you will need a safe bench that holds and supports a barbell. If you’ve never bench pressed in your life before not to worry because it isn’t about the amount of weight we will be concentrating on but rather the amount of reps we complete. NOTE* Always be sure to ask for a spotter or someone to watch you bench press. We don’t want the bar falling on you or you getting hurt.

Step 1:
Set up your rack.
Since we will not be using any weight, you should be all set and ready to go. (Depending on your level, you may add weight to better suit your strength)

Step 2:
Grab the bar and find a comfortable grip about shoulder width apart. Hold the bar in the base of your palm with a full grip and straight wrists.

Step 5:
