Bench press is a barbell exercise routine for beginners that helps develop chest mass. Keep your body flat on a bench and grasp the barbell with a shoulder width grip. Inhale as you bring the barbell down to your lower chest and keep your elbows close to your sides throughout. Exhale even as you press the weight up. Repeat this eight to ten times in three sets.

2. Incline Bench Press
