Static bench

This emphasizes the peak of the entire chest muscle, making it appear fuller!

Implementation:  (A Lie on a flat bench, your feet on the floor For balance.  Use a medium-wide grip so that your forearms are perpendicular to the floor When the barbell touches your pecs.  Raise the bar off the rack and hold it with your arms fully extended above you.  (B)  Hold it, in this state of contraction till failure.  I suggest you get a spotter for this one, if not, stop short of failure.  ( See 60 seconds and grow man grow article for info on time to perform exercise)

Variation I:  For a different feel lower the bar 2-3 inches rather than straight up and hold the peak.

Variation II:  This can be performed on incline to hit the upper pecs, or decline to hit the lowers.  You may also use dumbells.
