When we bench press, either with barbells or dumbbells, we tend to lock out at the top of the movement. We do the same thing when we do a push-up. This gives us a second to rest our chest right when it’s at peak contraction. The problem With this is we want to have the greatest resistance at this point, not take a break.
The issue with a traditional resistance band chest press is when we use a heavy band, it pulls us backwards as we press with the tension on the band increasing.
To offset this, we need to turn this into the best resistance band chest exercise you’re not doing.
First, we set the anchor up high, then lean forward to take advantage of gravity, step into a split stance for stability, then press downwards and bring you hands together in front for a better chest contraction. This works the whole chest, and you can really see all the fibres actively working.
