Forget standing to perform the typical chest press. Face away from the anchor with your feet elevated to take your suspension training to another level. The elevated chest press suspension exercise will put your entire body to the test. The exercise not only targets your shoulders, arms and chest, but also your entire core and lower body. Only those with a capable command over their bodyweight should attempt this exercise.
Step 1: Hang the Battle Rings so that the handles are about waist height and place a box of similar height a few feet back.
Step 2: Grab the handles with your hands and take a step back onto the box, use the handles for balance as you position yourself on the box.
Step 3: Keep your body in a straight line, arms both straight, and try not to sag your hips.
Step 4: Bend at the elbows and lower your body down until your chest reaches the handles.
Step 5: Now push yourself back up. This completes one repetition.
Tips & Safety: This is an advanced exercise that should not be attempted by beginners. You should have adequate control over your own bodyweight before attempting the exercise. For those who are prepared for the exercise, remember to keep your core tight and your entire body in alignment.
