Build A Bigger Chest Without Shoulder Discomfort
For complete upper body development, the more training options you have at your disposal, the better.
Not only does this enable you to train multiple angles, movement patterns, and contraction types, which allows you to maximise strength and hypertrophy…
But it means you can reduce injury risk by avoiding ‘pattern overload’, which occurs from repeatedly performing the same movement.
Whilst the bench press and its variations are the preferred ‘horizontal pressing’ exercises for many gym-goers…
Many individuals find this movement pattern to be quite hard on their shoulders, with repeated use leading to shoulder pain.
Furthermore, other individuals who’ve previously suffered from a shoulder injury may find the bench press produces aggravates the shoulder leading to intense discomfort.
But it isn’t just shoulder injuries that may cause an individual to seek alternatives to the bench press…
Taller people with long arms need to press the weight through a longer range of motion, which can result in the exercise becoming a ‘triceps dominant’ movement, and resulting in minimal chest activation.
In addition, stabilising a heavy weight over the lifter’s neck is highly risky, and if the lifter has suffered from a previous injury, or isn’t yet used to the movement, then this makes the bench press a sub-optimal exercise selection.
Fortunately, we’ve created a solution…
The Animal ISO Standing Chest Press
This is THE pressing exercise every gym needs.
Pressing from a standing position helps to eradicate many of the problems associated with the bench press.
Although the standing press can be performed with cables, the huge demand on core stability drastically restricts the amount of weight you can lift, which makes it almost impossible for stronger individuals to effectively target and overload their pectorals.
However, the Animal ISO Standing Chest Press enables you to press in the same horizontal movement plane, but the added back support allows for much heavier loading than pressing with cables.
It’s also considerably safer than bench pressing, since no spotter is required and there’s zero risk of getting trapped under the bar.
Here are some of the machine’s features: –
- Adjustable Handle Height
No matter how tall you are, you can bring the handles up to the appropriate height, making this machine incredibly comfortable to use.
- Adjustable Handle Angles
Easily change between a vertical or horizontal handle position in order to change the stress on the shoulder.
- Adjustable Pressing Depth
You can either limit the range of motion to reduce shoulder stress…
Or maximise it for a better stretch across the chest and trigger more hypertrophy
- No Maximum Weight Limit
Don’t be limited by your own strength – feel free to load the machine up as heavy as you need.
- Super Smooth Movement
Effortlessly place maximum tension on the working muscle and establish a strong mind-muscle connection for serious pectoral growth.
- Indestructible Design
No matter how much it’s used and abused, this machine will never let you down.
Who Will Benefit The Most From This Machine?
Truthfully, this machine will benefit anyone who uses it.
Any time your muscles are exposed to a brand new training stimulus, there is potential for brand new growth and development.
However, there are certain individuals for which it may be the most preferred upper body pressing option…
- Injured Individuals
If you’re suffering or returning from an injury, the standing chest press can enable you to press pain-free.
With the option of different handle angles, grip distances, and pressing depths, you can be sure to find a comfortable range of movement to train in and still get a training effect.
- Long-Limbed Individuals
Taller individuals with long arms may struggle to activate the chest during the bench press as their long levers make it more of a triceps and shoulder exercise.
The standing chest press stabilises the shoulder joint allowing them to really focus on stimulating their chest during the movement.
One of the biggest complaints about the bench press from sports coaches is that it’s not ‘sports specific’, since athletes play sports on their feet and not lying down.
The standing chest press not only enables athletes to train pressing movements in a more sports-specific position, but it also helps to strengthen their core musculature from the added bracing.
Those who are new to training will find the standing chest press super easy to use, making it ideal for people with a low training experience.
The fact it’s also safe and low risk make it a highly suitable exercise choice for beginners looking to rapidly build upper body strength and size.
Using The Standing Chest Press In Your Training
If you want to take a break from the bench press, but don’t want to lose your hard-earned upper body strength, then Animal ISO Standing Chest Press provides you with a fantastic training alternative.
Load up heavy and perform at the beginning of your workout…
Perform as an assistance exercise to give your pressing muscles some added volume without beating up the shoulder joint…
Due to the super smooth movement making it easy to maintain constant tension, you can even perform this exercise as a ‘high rep finisher’ and leave the gym with your chest swollen up like a pair of cannon balls.
