Having big, massive, rounded, muscular and separated chest muscles is a standard for bodybuilders and a dream goal for men who want to look big and muscular. Bench press is the foundation or basic exercise to build chest muscles
"Bench press is the grand daddy of bodybuilding exercises to build overall big chest muscles. Make sure you pull and point your elbows directly toward the floor. Also keep your elbows tucked in by your sides, not to flare out," Yang says.
Focus on contracting or squeezing pectoral (chest) muscles on the top of the pressing movement. Lowering the weight smooth with good control. "Have a spotter when you’re pushing your max without getting injured," Yang says. "Many people got hurt because they press too much uncontrolled weight or their ego is in in the way."
In addtion to mainly targeting overall chest muscles, bench press also works on the triceps (particularly the lateral head) and anterior deltoid (front shoulder) muscles.
One can also vary the grip width and angle of the seated bench to shift tension (muscle contraction)
