The Discovery™ Series Plate Loaded Line Chest Press has independent movement and converging pushing angles to increase the range of motion of the exercise. The progressive strength curve gradually increases force at end of the movement when the user is in the strongest position, allowing the user to engage more muscles. Oversized handles make pressing exercises more comfortable by spreading the load over a larger area of the user's hand and the easy seat adjustment means a broad range of user heights can be accommodated. The seat angle and adjustments allow for proper user positioning that ensures alignment of weight with joints for stabilization under lifting load. The movement arms move independently at an optimal angle to increase the user's range of motion. This not only ensures proper muscle activation but encourages users to engage the core at the same time. The 1.5" diameter of the handles allows for reduced pressure on the user's hands, decreasing the chance for strain and injury.
