BENCH


Powerlifting

The Bench Press is the big draw at Fitness Expos, powerlifting meets, and a favorite among gym rats. Like Squats and Deadlift, the Bench comes with a list of techniques to improve performance. The best Bench advice I ever received came from Dave Tate, Chad Aichs, Scot Mendelson, Kauka Lindsey, Bill Carpenter and Anthony Clark.

The best advice to improve the bench is to shorten your bar stroke (chest to lockout). Common sense, and bio-mechanics once again play a major roll in your success.
