Corina Marisol. Bench. July 29th , 2017.
The bench press, in its infinite glory is not the best exercise to show true strength. The dead lift, the physical act of pulling up as much weight as one can from the ground seems like a more fitting champion. Or what about the Olympic lifts, the movements that are competed on by athletes across the world on the greatest stage? Could even the dip be a more true testament of upper body strength than the bench press? Regardless of any of this, the bench press still holds a lure in our culture, and will for the foreseeable future be the only number that matures to recreational weight lifters. So how can you maximize your effort in the gym to make sure that your bench press numbers keep rising? Here are four simple steps that will surely help you add more weight to the bar.
Do you have tools, pots, garden shoes and other stuff that you wonder where to store? In such case you may think about buying or making outdoor storage benches. They are more expensive than the other types but that's for a reason - storage benches solve two problems at once and do it well. If you decide to go with them you may need to choose longer because the majority of storage benches don't look as elegant as the regular benches.
Search for Rippetoe's guide to rep ranges and strength, it is an extremely helpful graphic for our argument here. The largest effect on both strength and power occurs at lower rep ranges, below 8, generally somewhere between 3 and 6. What does this mean? No more drop sets, no more burn out sets until infinity, more powerlifting style training.
