🚨聽BENCH TIPS: CREATING FULL BODY TENSION👇

🔥聽How much d鈥檡a bench?聽
✅聽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.

✅✅✅聽You literally have to 鈥渘ail yourself to the bench鈥: let me explain. –
When I say 鈥渘ailing鈥 I mean actually creating a supportive muscle foundation from where you can create support & energy output from.

For the upper body, you鈥檒l need to try and 鈥渂end the bar鈥 or try to “tear it apart”. Don’t worry you won’t won鈥檛 be able to do so, but just the fact that you鈥檙e trying to, will allow your scapulas to be pulled back and down together, while creating an upper back arch fully pushing your chest out. This will also create upper back & trap tension, while also engaing your lats.

🚨聽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.

❌❌❌聽On the flip side, not doing what鈥檚 mentioned above simply won鈥檛 generate as much force, and will result in giving you a what I call: an “Inactive set up鈥 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!
