Everyone wants a bigger bench press right?
And people will tell you the only way to increase how much your press is just by doing more bench press.
Yes progressively increasing the weight over time will lead to you lifting more over time, especially if you are a beginner.
But eventually, you’ll hit a plateau and you just can’t keep putting up the weight like you used to.
That means you’ve reached your strength gainz limit on the exercise and need to start focusing on other aspects of the lift you haven’t considered.
You have to start picking apart the lift and work on those parts individually. Eg find some weak points you might have with the lift and make them better.
This might mean increasing how fast you can push the bar or increasing your strength and technique with the bottom and top portion of the lift.
In this video, I give you 3 ways to do just that.
Focus on these 3 exercises before you go back to pushing heavyweight and you’ll find the weight will be flying off the bar!
