How To: Set Position Bench Pressing

The important thing when determining where to position yourself under the bar, is efficiency. Not having to travel further than you have to. It may not feel like it makes the greatest difference when the weight is light but it does when its heavy! And for you shirted lifters, this is the difference in success or failure!

While eyes under the bar is a good beginning training cue, it does not put each lifter in the best position. Everyone has a different build and will need to set up in a slightly different spot. Just make sure that spot is measurable and consistent.

They key is to eliminate distance traveled and when you press the bar you are just missing the rack. In a game of details, this is efficiency and all the details add up to big results.
