Begin by lying on a flat bench with a barbell in your hands; your palms should face your feet. Now, extend the bar straight over your chest but do not fully extend your arms. Keep the bend in your arms and then slowly lower the bar down behind your head until you feel a stretch in your chest. Rotate your shoulders and allow them to move downward in their natural motion. Next, bring the barbell back to the starting position by moving through the same motion that you used to lower the bar.
This exercise has long been used as a rib cage expander but its value has been lost in modern day bodybuilding splits.
