Hi I am Ian Lauer with Team Powertec. Today I’m wanna take you to a workout on the functional trainer. It’s gonna be more traditional style workout but using this piece of equipment. This is for your chest and your shoulders. Four basic movements are gonna get you result, really focusing on again the pecs and the front part of the delts give you a powerful and strong upper body look.

So i’m gonna start right here with a chest press, we’re in position and push and squeeze. Breathe in on the way back and out as you press. This is a great stretch in the pecs, and squeeze as you press through. Stretch and squeeze. This really a basic movement and because the bench is elevated and then the handles are of this height, it’s similar to a flat bench. Now I could drop the bench and lower the handles and still press towards the ceiling. That’s one if the nice things about the functional trainer. You can adjust the bench or the height of the handles and get the desired results.

Next were gonna move into flys. So this is another great movement. Arms are extended but still have a slight bend in the elbows and you are going to squeeze forward. Stretch back and squeeze forward. You’ll see the difference here is we’re gonna moving through the shoulder joint instead of elbows and shoulder. And again, that’s for the pecs. So those are two great exercise for the pecs.

We’re gonna move into shoulder exercises that I was talking about before. All you have to do is lower the handles just like so. Pull, drop into place and you’re ready for front raises. We’re gonna do these seated. One of the nice things about working from a seated position is that you can’t rock as much as if you are standing so it’s a little more strict form which results, gives you better results. So here we are front raises, stretch back and front. And you should see the front of my shoulders working as you exhale and bring up to the top and up. So that’s exercise number three.

Fourth and final exercise, right here in position for the shoulder press. Were here and press. Breathe in on the way down and out as you push. This is a compound movement working through the shoulder joint and elbow. Great exercise for the shoulders as well as the triceps. Now I’m a little bit winded because doing those movements back to back really is great for your cardiovascular fitness as well as strength training. So if you’re looking to improve your chest and your shoulders try those four exercise on a powertec functional trainer.
