Chris: For more advanced users using the lower bar will make more difficulty and will engage the chest muscles more. So, to use place the hands shoulder-width apart and begin lowering the body towards the bar till elbows reach a ninety-degree angle. And then press yourself back up and engage the triceps and chest muscles.
