indehoy. Bench. July 18th , 2018.
The starting point to any bench press rep starts with your grip on the bar. If your grip is too wide you use more chest and expend energy pushing outwards, too narrow more triceps and expending energy pushing inwards. The perfect grip for you will be able to incorporate both muscle groups but slightly favoring where you are strongest and then all power goes into pressing straight up. Its finally time to add weight to the bar. Lay back on the bench, not too close or far away from the struts as this can either waste valuable energy when taking the weight off or hitting the struts when you press the weight up. Plant your feet firmly on the floor with your knees bent to an angle of approximately 80 degrees. I prefer to keep my feet flat and heals on the floor due to the federation I lift in. There are some immense bench press athletes who arch up onto their tip toes, however, I have never felt stable in this position.
If storage is not what you had in mind by purchasing an indoor bench, then think about what other kind of use it will be for. If the bench is for people who are removing their shoes at the door, then you may want a smaller bench that will fit in the entryway. Just remember to measure the amount of space that is available before setting out to select the right bench.
The bench press is by far the most popular movement in any gym. It is also an exercise with which have many lifters, casual and competitive alike, have trouble mastering. Though most trainees tend to just plop down on the bench and press away, there is a huge technical aspect to the bench press that many people find greater and more challenging than with the squat, deadlift, or other lifts. If you want to increase your bench press, it is imperative that you work just as much, if not more on your technique as you do your muscular strength.
