Bench Press With Your Lats
This bench cue is a great way to connect with and tension the lats early. There is a significant difference in the activation an athlete feels if you cue them to row the bar in vs simply lowering.
When you lower the bar normally you tend to put tension on the chest and shoulders, never really loading the lats properly. When you think about rowing the bar down you set that tension in the lats where you want it!
It's all in how you initiate the bench descent. The difference is even more pronounced for shirted benchers!
Try it for yourself! Next bench session cue yourself on initiating the bench with a row and you'll feel the difference.
