Imke Delara. Bench. March 29th , 2017.
Most people are unaware that a regular build and frame actually means that bench press would not be effective. People with long arms use the length of their arms to lift the weight, and as a result of this, this workout routine becomes ineffective and redundant. In the case of such people, the decline routine for strength is probably a better option. This is more suited to their body type and might prove to be more effective.
As our bench tops come in solid raw bamboo planks to prevent damage via transport, simply seal with any clear varnish found in any hardware store. Once sealed if there is a large build up of scratches over time simply sand it down and re-varnish for a brand new looking bench top.
At the same time, it is also known for the maximum number of shoulder and other injuries. Hence, it is important to implement the right technique while doing bench press, so that you can continue to do the it without having to worry about injuring yourself.
In the inclined bench press your upper chest will be more worked as compared to the middle chest muscle which is usually worked in the regular bench press. To do this exercise, you lift the barbell off the rack and slowly lower it down towards your chest. When you lower the barbell ensure you do not touch the barbell to the chest. Then slowly push the bar back to the starting position. Your movements should be controlled, so that it works the muscles much more and there are no chances of injuring yourself.
