Are you looking for a killer chest workout wherever you are ?
SmartPress is what you need ! This sport equipment made of 6 short resistance bands connected to a foam frame offers a total resistance of 80 kilos.
SmartPress has been specially designed to target the chest and perform Chest Press, Chest Flies and weighted Push-Ups, because it resolves 3 limitations of these exercises :
- Feel the resistance from the beginning of the movement and feel the maximum load faster, thanks to shorter elastics;
- Lock the elastics behind your back without hurting yourself, thanks to the foam frame that makes the equipment comfortable;
- Quick and easy to use, as there is no need to manipulate the bands to shorten them.
SmartPress is made of 6 short resistance bands with a total of 80 kg of resistance: 2 x 8 kg (white), 2 x 14 kg (black) and 2 x 18 kg (blue).
Each elastic band measures 16 cm and can stretch up to 5x its initial size, i.e. 80 cm.
A fabric cover surrounds the bands to protect them and to prevent them from stretching more than 5x their original size.
The resistance bands are connected to soft handles, which can be held directly in the hand but can also be used with the SmartWorkout Bar by sliding the bar into the handles.
On the back, the bands are attached to a foam frame, which allows you to lock the bands behind your back comfortably; or lock the bands under your feet without taking the risk that they may slip.
The foam frame is 53 cm long and 12 cm wide.
SmartPress is made of 6 elastic bands with different resistances:
- White: 8 kg each,
- Black: 14 kg each,
- Blue: 18 kg each.
The total maximum resistance is 80 kg, but the bands can be removed to adjust the resistance. Therefore, SmartPress has 7 levels of resistance.
For example, by removing the white bands, the maximum resistance felt is 64 kg.
The maximum resistance is reached when the bands are stretched to 4x their initial size, for example at the end of a chest press movement for most users.
Although the resistance is progressive (low at the beginning of the movement, high at the end of the movement), the maximum resistance is reached quicker because the elastic bands are short.

IMPROVED EXERCISES WITH SMARTPRESS
The exercises can be completed with the handles (hammer grip) or with the bar (pronation and supination grip).
Lower the frame toward your lower back to feel even more resistance at the beginning of the movement.
Variant: with the bar. This increases stability when completing the movement.
INCLINED CHEST PRESS
Pushing from the bottom up will put more emphasis on the upper chest.
Alter the crossing of the arms to balance the work on both pecs.
Easily lock the equipment by putting the soft handles under your hands.
When sitting, lock the bands under your feet. The frame ensures that the elastics do not slide toward you during the exercise.
BENT OVER ROW
Three holds are possible. With the bar: pronation and supination hold; with the handles: hammer hold.
