I’ve always been embarrassed of my bench press. It’s been a sore spot for a long time, in fact up until last year I couldn’t even bench 100kg.. As a self professed strength coach, I thought this was somewhat unacceptable so I’ve been working on it for a year now. My strength has improved through the roof, but my technique… well that’s another story. Power lifting is a very technical sport and coming from my weightlifting background it’s been such a pleasure to fall in love with the technical side of it. With Super Total 3 around the corner I decided that it was about time to really dial my bench in..
In this video I travel out to CrossFit Arete to get a bench press lesson from my friend Craig Gibson. I credit the tips in this video as well as some on the comp day help from Ash Jones with my massive PB of 120kg in the bench press.
