Note

If you are new at this exercise, it is advised that you use a spotter. If no spotter is available, then be conservative with the amount of weight used.

Don’t bounce the weight off your chest. You should be in full control of the barbell and dumbbells at all times.

Focus on your breathe.

Don’t forget to place the bar, weight plates, and dumbbells back in their place.
