In the video, the designer is seen doing the bench press. This exercise works the muscles of the upper body and strengthens and tones them, including pectorals, arms, and shoulders. Apart from upper body strength, bench press improves muscle endurance and prepares the body for other movements like pushups, according to Healthline.

Here are the steps to do a traditional bench press:

*Lie on your back on a flat bench. Hold the barbell with your hands at slightly wider than shoulder-width distance.

* Slowly lift the barbell off the rack, lower it to your chest by bending your elbows out to the side. Make sure that your feet are placed firmly on the ground and your hips on the bench throughout the movement.

* Now push the bar back up to the starting position while pushing your feet into the floor. Repeat five to 10 times, depending on the weight you are lifting.

Beginners should try this under the supervision of a fitness expert.
