question

All i need to know is what is a seated barbell press and a dumbell side raise and also is there a alternative to a tricep pushdown? Im doing this training program and it has told me to do these routines i have a website that tells me most of the lifts but not these and as for the tricep pushdown i need a machine for that, so any help would be appriciated

    instead of tricep pushdowns you could try rope pushdowns (on a lat machine), or bench dips (probably better)

    seated barbell press:

    1 sit, back of bench should be at slight angle from vertical
    2 hold barbell, palms away, at shoulder height, slightly wider than shoulder width grip
    3 press vertically upwards
    4 lower slowly back to shoulder height
    5 rinse, repeat

    With dumbells in both hands, lift arms up from your sides so you make a T shape.

    Lower, repeat.

    Can be done alternately.
