Bench Press (Powerlifting)
Bench press is a resistance training and body building exercise that concentrates on strengthening the upper body by pressing a weight upwards from a supine position. The target muscles are the pectoralis major and the supporting arm, chest, and shoulder muscles. The person doing the bench press lies on their back holding the weight on both hands, push it upwards, and then lower the weight again to the chest level. This movement is called one repetition.
Competition involves lifting weights in three attempts. In competition, lifts may be performed equipped (raw) or un-equipped (classic). Powerlifting Bench Press has been a Paralympic sport since 1984.
