START: Grab a barbell with an overhand grip, your hands a little less than shoulder-width apart. Lie on a flat bench and hold the bar over your chest with your arms straight.

MOVEMENT: Without moving your upper arms, bend your elbows to lower the bar until your forearms are past parallel to the floor. Pause, and then slowly lower your elbows down to your sides so the barbell is just a couple inches above your sternum. Push the weight away from your chest and return to the starting position. That is 1 rep.
