Unrack In Bench Shirt

Unrack In Bench Shirt

Where I see a lot of new shirted lifters struggle, is with the unrack process. They dont have the patience yet to let someone else bring them into position and they try to lock out with the bar too soon. That is a mistake because it will pull you out of position

In the shirt your elbows are going to be awkwardly turned in during the set up and while you position your hands. If you drive your elbows out then the collar will ride up, and your shoulders will untuck

Be patient and allow your hand off to bring you out into position where you'll be able to lock out comfortably under the bar. It takes some getting used to but patience is the name of the game. Right when that bar comes out you'll feel exactly where you need to be to establish that lock out strongly!

Stuck in a plateau? Trying everything but bench progress seems stalled? Email us a video of your bench press and what you're struggling with and we will show you exactly what you need to do and how long it will take to reach your goal. Coachben@bigbenchas.com
