How Do You Increase Bench Press Power?
The bench press is often seen as the most important indicator for how strong you are and how hard you work in the gym. The more weight you put up, the better you must be. The only problem is that most people encounter a serious problem when it comes to this exercise: a plateau. You work and work and eventually you get to a point where it seems like you’ve hit a wall and simply can’t get any stronger. Don’t worry, because you can and after a few short weeks you’ll be stronger than ever. Practice proper bench press technique. Lie on your back on a bench and grab the barbell with a grip approximately shoulder-width apart. Always keep your feet flat on the floor, a couple of feet apart.
