In Person Coaching Experience (Live Cues, Bench Belt, Wearing Slingshot, Wrist Wraps)
LIVE COACHING SESSION
(Melville, NY - book session by email)
As you can hear in the video, some cues we I was working on with Zach was...
1. Verbalize it
2. Big Breath
As someone who mostly goes with self take outs (which is fine!), he wasn't verbalizing his communication when he did have a handoff which leaves him at a disadvantage
So we worked on a 3,2, breathe pattern so we were on the same page.
Big breath was something I used to remind him to slow things down and focus in on his breathing and bracing. This was something we were going over prior to his sets as so he was fully on board with what was expected
During the take out you'll hear "sink it" and "steady it"
These are reminders of what we also talked about prior with dragging your shoulders under as the bar comes out. This will create a drop effect in the bar if done correctly (See tutorial here!)
Steady it is a reminder to again, not be in a rush. Wait until there is zero momentum left in that bar and it's under full control. If this takes you beyond the press call at a meet, then so be it.
Never rush a press!
Our in person bench coaching experience is designed to teach you the bench press from the ground up in under 2 hours!
We cover every detail involved in the movement. This also comes with 3 free weeks of online coaching as well to make sure techniques stick and are practiced!
