Bench Press


Increase weight ea set

Video courtesy of Rogue Fitness.  Our last time hitting Bench Press this cycle before we re-test our 5X5. This week, we go for a little more muscular endurance.  Higher reps than normal, but still want to push for some good weight.  Remember to keep your shoulder blades glued to the bench throughout the lift.  The second they come off the bench, you roll your shoulders forward and put them in a spot that can easily lead to injury.  We want you strong, not hurt.  Increase weight each set.  The goal is the last rep of every set should be pushing you close to your limit, but not leading to failure.  Choose wisely.


On the 2:00 x 7 Sets:

35 Double Unders

7 Devil’s Press (50/35)
