🚨 BENCH TIPS: CREATING FULL BODY TENSION👇
🔥 How much d’ya bench?
✅ Well, if you want to bench heavy weight, you better create the foundation to be able to do so.
Even though the bench press is primarely a chest dominant movement, you actually have to use your whole body in the right way to be able to give your maximal strength output.
✅✅✅ You literally have to “nail yourself to the bench”: let me explain. –
When I say “nailing” I mean actually creating a supportive muscle foundation from where you can create support & energy output from.
🚨 Same thing goes for your lower body: you want to open up your hips & squeeze your glutes to really get all the benefits from the set up.
❌❌❌ On the flip side, not doing what’s mentioned above simply won’t generate as much force, and will result in giving you a what I call: an “Inactive set up” which will be weaker unstable, and can actually lead to injury since your shoulders will stay in a more vulnerable position.Try this out and tell me what you think about it. Also, write down your bench PR. I want you to implement these cues and see whether it’ll increase or not!
