My neck issues limit my ability to do upper body exercises but I don’t let it get in the way. I got Bodylastics Resistance Bands to do some great muscle building exercises without bothering my neck. I use them to do chest presses (see video above) and other muscle building exercises.
Chest presses are a core exercise for building upper body strength which is needed for completing everyday tasks. It helps with burning body fat and improving general posture. And ladies, studies have shown numerous benefits of strength training for women. One of the key benefits is in keeping women from gaining belly fat. There is no scientific evidence that it “bulks.” It’s great for anyone of any age!
