There’s no shortage of free online tools for people who want to become the best in their sport, but there’s a big caveat: you’re going to need a little bit of work.
We talked to several of the best athletes in the world to get an inside look at the basics and why they think the free tools on the market are lacking.
How to train for your bench press If you’re a powerlifter or powerlighter, you’ve probably been training to press the bar for decades, and it’s one of your primary goals.
But how do you make sure you’re getting the most out of your workout?
To help you make that decision, we asked a few athletes, coaches, and fitness experts to answer some key questions.
1/1: Is there a good bench press training routine for me?
When it comes to training for bench press greatness, the most popular answers include a combination of dumbbells and dumbbell machines, but experts also recommend different exercises depending on your goal.
For some athletes, it’s all about getting stronger while still being flexible.
For others, it can be a bit more of a grind.
“The bench press is a pretty versatile movement,” said Jeff Puhlman, director of strength and conditioning at New Balance.
“If you want to be a bench press champion, you have to do all sorts of different things.
The bench press has become a great training tool for people with varying training needs.
There’s a lot of things you can do to get stronger.
For me, it just comes down to, what kind of athlete do I want to train?”
Is there one thing that I should do in every workout?
A lot of athletes think that a good squat or deadlift is the key to pressing their way to your top.
But Puhnman pointed out that for some, that’s not always the case.
“You can get stronger by working on your deadlift with the same load that you train your bench,” he said.
“But you can also make sure that your deadlifts are light enough to press safely.”
That means if you want a strong barbell squat, Puhm says it’s a good idea to work on getting your dead lift up to a level where you can get it off the floor.
“Don’t make the mistake of trying to get the deadlift up as high as possible to make your bench work,” Puhman said. 4/1
