If you find that there is a specific part of the lift where you struggle try to drive through that part even quicker if possible. I will talk about sticking points in a future article. Keep driving the bar upwards as fast as you can and with as much power as you can until your elbows lock out and your arms are straight. There are many specific lock out exercises but I will delve into these deeper in another article. In 2005 I could bench press what I though was a very respectable 120kg and then I met my friend Dave Bulldog Beattie and he changed my perspective of what I thought was a good bench press. Watching him bench press close to 300kg made me realize I had to improve. He taught me the above principles and in 2009 I finished second in the WPC World Powerlifing Championship and benched 285kg just six months after injuring my pectoral muscle in a raw competition. My best raw bench press in competition is 225kg in 2008.
When one buys a piano, one typically gets the bench that comes with the piano. And make no mistake these are usually lovely benches because they match your lovely piano. However, they are not always the most comfortable bench. And they dont always do much for the room (except match the piano). Today, there are so many choices in benches. They come in a variety of finishes, and can be tailored to fit your décor as well as match your piano!
