Lever Seated Close Grip Press


Utility: Basic
Mechanics: Compound
Force: Push



Sit on seat with chest at height of handles. Grasp handles with shoulder width or slightly narrower overhand grip, just against sides of chest; elbows somewhat down to sides.


Press lever until arms are extended. Return weight until forearm is against upper arm. Repeat.
