Perform the bar-bell bench press correctly by following our guide
Bar-bell press to the neck
Lie on a bench with your feet flat on the floor. Grab the bar-bell with an overhand grip, shoulder width apart. Keeping your elbows tucked in, lower the bar to the top of your collar bone with control, keeping it clear of your throat. Then press the weight up. If using heavy weights, it’s advisable to use a spotter for this exercise.
