Teaching The Bench Press Set Up


Master the basics! The first step I teach in the bench press is simply achieving a good pinch and tuck position with the shoulders.

You cant build from there if you dont even have the basics down

Become a master of the most simple step. I'm always surprised how many lifters breeze by this and fail to pass step 1!

Where I find lifters struggle the most is when they pinch their shoulder blades together they want to shrug.

The tuck is the opposite action of a shrug! You should look to lengthen your neck and pack the shoulders towards the hips!

An anti-shrug!

Remember, you cant master step 5 without first mastering step 1!
