Video courtesy of Juggernaut Training Systems. Our Pressing movement this cycle will be the Close-Grip Bench Press.  This movement not only helps make the chest stronger, but the shoulder and triceps become even more involved, getting them stronger as well.  Just like with normal bench press, keep your shoulder blades locked to the bench, feet glued to the ground, and allow the elbows to drop straight down.  With the change in grip, try to keep the elbows close to the body and aim to touch the bar on the chest just slightly lower than where it hits on a regular bench press.
