Chest Press, Seated, Machine

Type: Chest
The seated chest press is a safe exercise for beginners who want to tone, increase strength and endurance in the chest muscles. It mainly focuses on the chest muscles and also works the triceps in the same movement. When using fixed path machines, it's imperative that you set up the machine correctly for your height. Machine makes and model vary so always get a gym instructor to demonstrate the correct set up before using for the first time.
