This is a good warm-up exercise. If you are on a mass-building cycle this will not do much for you because it's simply not challenging enough (if you are a guy). For women, this is a great exercise that can help tone and tighten the upper body muscles and is very comfortable to execute. Some women do this exercise modified by executing the movement on the floor with their knees down on the floor and legs crossed at the ankles.

As a warm-up exercise for guys this exercise is perfect because it gets your blood flowing into the chest muscles at an accelerated rate and will have the effect of priming your muscles before you engage in lifting weights and doing exercises for the chest.
