UNEVEN LOCKOUT QUICK FIX

UNEVEN LOCKOUT QUICK FIX

💥 UNEVEN LOCKOUT💥
 
Having one arm lag behind the other when you’re benching can be extremely frustrating. Often times it’s a mobility restriction that eventually you can fix but sometimes it’s an anatomical issue that you just have to work around.
 
The most common issue that causes this is a restriction in the scapula preventing a lifter from being able to drag down and back and lock that in. The side to side difference in mobility can be enough to cause an uneven lockout in the bench press.
 
You can take the time to do soft tissue work and correct the issue but in the meantime there is a quick fix.
 
All you need to do is change your grip width on the arm that is lagging behind. By taking the hand out it shortens the press on that side and can help you even out the bar
 
Since we are moving that hand out and ending up with an even lockout you won’t feel lopsided or have the bar sway around on you. It really is a quick fix that you implement in your next training session
