Health Watch: incline bench and body bar

Have an incline bench and a body bar but not sure what to do with them? Fitness expert Carol White has you covered.

Carol White says, ' Hi the exercise I'm going to demonstrate today is with a body bar and it's on an incline bench. There are several ways you can incline a bench, I've got it at the lowest besides being flat the more you elevate the incline the different parts of your chest you get so its good to have a variety, don't be afraid to mix things up. I've got a body bar here these are really nice because an Olympic bar is about 45 pounds so you might not be able to do that. This one is 12 pounds and they go up to 25 or more pounds. they are user friendly and easy to use at home as well. I'm going to show you several ways. We will start with a narrow press with the thumbs together and down and in. Now the difference with this one is you will get a little more inner chest and more triceps. Make sure they exhale at the top and inhale down. The next one got a little bit wider width and bring it down same body parts just at a different degree triceps again outer chest. Now if you go more than shoulder width apart now you are getting more width to your chest less tricep and a little more shoulder work. Remember exhale inhale. When you come up make sure you use your core. Make sure you stretch after each segment. I'm Carol White owner of Carol White's personal fitness studio.
