Recipe of the Week: High Protein Granola Bar

Exercise of the Week: Guillotine Press

The Guillotine Press is the same as a barbell bench except the bar is lowered to your neck. This causes the sternal head of the pectoralis major to be recruited strongly, while minimizing secondary muscle involvement.

Set up for the Guillotine Press by loading the weight you want to use on the barbell.

Lay down on the bench and grasp the bar with an overhand grip (palms facing forward) with your hands at wider than shoulder width. Take the bar off the rack.

Slowly lower the bar as far as possible towards your neck.

Pause, then raise the bar straight back up without locking the elbows at the top of the movement.

Repeat for desired reps.
