Chest Up Pad


What's up guys, I'm Bonnie Schroeder and I'm so excited to introduce you to the CHEST UP PAD!
If you're someone who experiences any type of discomfort or sensitivity during chest supported exercises, this product is about to be a game changer for you.

Let me quickly tell you a little bit about myself and why I was so excited to create the Chest Up Pad.

I'm a powerlifting athlete/coach with an extensive background in athletics that also includes track & field, bodybuilding and crossfit. Strength training has been such an integral part of my life for the past decade that I'm not the person I am today without it. The confidence and empowerment that comes with strength training are unparalleled and I love helping people discover their own capabilities.

And like all passions, training doesn't come without its occasional moment of frustration.

My personal issue was always experiencing some type of sensitivity with chest supported exercises and I would end up just avoiding them most of the time because there was really no other solution.

In May of 2021 I had a preventative mastectomy and reconstruction which led to even MORE discomfort during these movements and had to abandon those exercises all together. 

After a few months of frustration I finally came up with a beautifully simple solution.

The Chest Up Pad!

This sleek and supportive wedge straps onto your bench and takes pressure off the chest when doing chest supported movements. The Chest Up Pad is made of several layers of firm foam which keeps the chest elevated rather than pressed into the bench. The backside is made of a grippy material to keep it firmly in position. The Chest Up Pad locks into place by stretchy straps that simply velcro around the back of the bench. Its small enough to fit into your gym bag and is sure to be the newest staple in every gym.

I wanted to work with the Abmat team because I already knew the quality of their products was unmatched and had been wildly impressed with the ingenuity of their training implements. I also wanted to create a product that was American made and supported a local business. Everyone knows Abmat is renown for their creative and functional products, so it seemed like a perfect fit.

Don't forget, the Chest Up Pad is NOT just for women! This product is designed to help people of all shapes and sizes, men and women included. Theres no reason to avoid these exercises anymore! Say goodbye to sensitivity and hello to your new favorite training tool!
