Svend press

The Svend press is an exercise where the chest is targeted by performing presses while squeezing two weight plates together. It is usually performed for relatively high reps with light weights as an accessory movement to the bench press or as a burnout movement on chest day.


  1. Keeps tension on the chest muscles throughout the movement
  2. Great for a focused chest session
  3. Serious pump for the chest even with light weights
