So the questions I’ve been asked, “How do I get this thing around me for the chest press?”

So, there’s an easy way to do it, there’s a lot of hard ways to do it. Usually when I set up for the exercise videos, I’m already in position.

How to position the band for X3 chest press

But the easiest way to do it is you want the band to be between the deltoid and triceps, so sitting right in here.

You want it wrapped around your back, and you want relatively, they don’t need to be exactly lined up on your back. If it’s like that, that’s okay. But you don’t want it like really far apart on your back.

So, the easiest way to do it is: you get it over on one shoulder like this, then over your head. So, you’re kinda wearing it crosswise, like this.

Next, you move it down over your shoulder. So, you see right between the deltoid and the tricep then I move my arm underneath and then slide the thing around.

So, now I’m in position to do the chest press. You can see, perfect.

Now, also as you do the movement, don’t raise the elbows because you’ll end up pushing the band over your shoulder.

Keep it in the position where, about like that, about 45 degrees from the body which would be a normal chest press, bench-press side position and then you push away from yourself accordingly.
