Get a stronger bench press
When it comes to warming up for heavy movements, we insist on performing warm up protocols in conjunction with your warm up sets of whatever the main lift of the day is - in this case, Bench Press. Not only does this get you strong, stable and ready to move weight, it helps you assess, identify and troubleshoot points of “tightness” and/or instability before you move into working efforts. Beyond that, throwing in your warm up stuff in with your workout stuff helps shave off about 20minutes from what would have been a long session if you were to warm up separately from the main exercise. 🏋🏼♂️ Training Tip from ELITE personal trainer: @coach_patty_roach_92
