- Similarly, care must be taken to ensure that there is no deflection in the region of the spine. For this, strain the muscles of the press well, and make sure that they do not become relaxed during the exercise.
On exhalation, pull the bar to the chest, elbows at the same time, directed back. On inhalation, return to the starting position. The exercise is performed at a slow pace.
