Don't Chase The Bar

Don't Chase The Bar


The take out process is highly overlooked when it comes to bench press technique. One of the most difficult aspects is keeping the shoulders planted into the bench and relying on the hand off person to get you out into position

This fault happens most easily when the hand off pulls you up too much and out of position. When this happens you cannot chase after the bar. You cant chase after the bar even when it's a good handoff or it will pull your shoulders out

You need to be patience, dig those shoulders in deep, keep those arms short (but locked!) and tune into the lats. This is often one of the technical aspects I work on regularly in my own training. Really easy to fall out of pattern here and always good to work on it
