Press with Purpose: 3 Ways to Cue the Bench Press for Stronger Lifts



We've been bench pressing regularly throughout this cycle, and "spoiler alert" we'll be testing out a 1 or 3 rep max bench press during Test Week.


Bench pressing seems like a relatively straight-forward lift, especially compared to the technical Olympic lifts, and you've probably all had years of bench pressing experience throughout your life (who needs "leg day" bro?). Truth is, there are plenty of subtle technical modifications one can make to add pounds to their bench press and this BarBend article does a great job of summarizing them.

Starting with the Unrack & Setup, then the Descent and finally the Press & Lockout. Read through the article; whether they're reminders or new information for you, it's worth reviewing and practicing during tomorrow's strength.
