reason for this is that,  you want to make sure that the lower chest muscles are fully contrasted.

Safety measures to take into consecrations during declining barbell chest press performance.

Always remember

Always remember that you are in a decline position so you will need a spotter or someone that can assist you up during the execution.

This is very important because you never know you may have a difficult time sometimes pushing the weight back up again, that can happen to anyone.

So, ask for help you can ask your trainer or one of your gym friends to help you out.

Concentrate and focus 

Don,t rush yourself on this exercise move slowly for better performance.

 Concentrate and focus on the target lower part of your chest, don’t let weight stray off or fall off from your hands. 

Don’t exaggerate yourself 

Don’t overweight your self load the weight that your power can be able to control throughout the exercise.

you are in a decline position you may want to start with the lighter weight first then add up to it later along the line.

Remember that you have to hold the weight briefly at the down

position for a second or 2 to contrast your lower chest muscles fully before you now move it back up to the beginning position.

So,  the downward movement should be slightly slower than the up move movement.

Don’t create any bad momentum for yourself 

Take care don’t let your elbow lock down at the downside, don’t bounce the weight down to your chest that might hot you.

Do not create any momentum that can jeopardize the perfect performance throughout.

Let your legs be still, don’t move your head, don’t raise your neck, and the rest part of your body,  move only your hands throughout. 

Don’t let the weight control you
