Resistance training is a unique type of training that works your muscles against an opposing force of resistance. This force can be applied through exercise equipment, resistance bands, household objects or your own body weight. Bench press with household objects makes an excellent exercise for those people who do not have time to go to a gym or those who are looking to try something new. This exercise helps develop and tone pectoral muscles.
In order to begin this exercise, lie down on a bench with two gallon-size water bottles in your hands. Next step is to fully extend your arms and position the bottles directly over your head. Slowly lower the bottles to chest area and push them back up to the starting position to complete one repetition. Make sure that you feel a stretch in your chest at the bottom of the movement. Exhale as you press the bottles upward.
You can reap the maximum benefits from resistance training exercises if your training sessions are followed by the consumption of protein-rich diets. It also makes a good idea to take a protein supplement that accelerates lean muscle growth.
