indehoy. Bench. July 15th , 2018.
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.
Foam rolling your upper body also has benefits. Loosening up your lower back can help mediate the strain and stress that is put on it when arching it during the bench press, and foam rolling your lats can help you form a tighter base from which to push. Foam rolling you biceps and front delt will also aid in loosening up your shoulder, and finally rolling around on your chest will relieve any nagging tension or strain that has built up there. Pretty much, roll, roll a lot, and do it before you lift, it helps.
