Ivona Gita. Bench. June 16th , 2017.
Sit on the incline bench. Make sure that your back is properly positioned on the rest and feet are firmly planted on the floor.
It is very important to consider proper technique while performing any exercise. With a proper technique, you not only reap maximum benefits, but can also avoid injuries. Bench press is one of the very popular exercises in the gym amongst both men as well as women. It is mainly so, because it is entirely an upper body exercise and it helps in building upper body strength. The muscles which are strengthened with this weight training exercise include triceps, anterior and middle deltoids, pectoralis major and minor, wrist flexors, etc. Along with these muscles, the rotator cuff and biceps work as shoulder stabilizers and are slightly strengthened.
Another important thing to remember when you are trying to get natural muscle gains is, your muscles have to rebuild. In order to do that they need two things, nutrients and rest. Many people have this misconception that the more often you work a muscle, the faster it will grow. Well, that is completely false. When you weight train, you are breaking down the muscle fibers. When they rebuild, they improve, and for them to rebuild they need the time to do it. I myself adopted a 3 day on - 1 day off schedule, working each body part once in that 3 day cycle. That's the schedule that helped me acheive the largest and most consistent bench press gains.
While doing so, you have the option of going for positive or negative training. You just have to lower the bar for negative training, and push the bar back up for positive training.
