Do you want to learn how to bench, or learn how to bench better? If so, this guide will teach you everything you need to know.
Everyone wants a big bench, whether they admit it or not.
When someone finds out you lift weights – unless they’re a competitive strength athlete – they’re not going to ask what you squat or deadlift. No, they’re going to ask what you bench.
Last year, we sent out a survey asking people what lift they struggled with the most and most wanted to improve. My assumption was that people would have the easiest time with deadlifts and bench and struggle most with squats. Boy was I wrong. Almost 2/3 of respondents said the bench was their biggest source of frustration.
