As I get older and to a certain extent wiser, my definition of ‘Fitness’ has evolved. For a large portion of my training life I have been preoccupied with how my body looks rather than how it actually functions. Whilst to the casual observer I had the outward appearance of someone who is fit, I can assure you this has been anything but the case! 😔 However since becoming a Father and not only trying to be a role model for my Son, but simply wanting to be able to keep up him. I find my focus shifting and a desire to embrace the aspects of fitness that I have shied away from in the past, because they quite simply aren’t as ‘fun’ to me. I’ve therefore decided to explore alternate training methods to incorporate into my existing Workouts. Following this rather protracted build up, I’d like to introduce my new Kettlebells from @strengthshopuk. 🤓
The bench press is one of the best compound movements and done right can be very effective -how can I get stronger on bench ? Progressive overload adding weigh to the bar each week or adding more reps each week to eventually be able to move a substantial load.anyone who has train for a long period of time will fall into the category of Plateau,weather it is a plateau on a certain weight or only hitting a certain amount of reps.This is a sign that your body is getting to used to the movement and some different compounds and isolations need to change -I see far to many people not warm up correctly for pressing they walk into the gym slap 60kg onto the bar and are asking for an injury.
-in order to get the most out of the movement you need to treat every set as if it’s your heaviest.How can I do this?you can do this by remaining tight through each rep shoulders and scaps should be pinched tight flat on the bench with your feet planted into the ground to drive up. Bench pressing today was 2x6 @90kg this was my first week back flat benching after 7 weeks of incline pressing
