APE A CIR­CUS STRONGMAN!

Health & Nutrition - - FITNESS FORUM -

You can im­prove your bench press by as much as 40 pounds do­ing this sim­ple trick: Through­out the lift, imag­ine you’re try­ing to snap the bar in half. It’ll ac­ti­vate an army of mus­cles fi­bres, par­tic­u­larly in your lats and tri­ceps. The more mus­cle fi­bres you use, the greater your abil­ity to lift heav­ier weight. Even though it pri­mar­ily tar­gets the pecs, the bench press is a whole-body ex­er­cise. When your tech­nique is spot-on, you can an­tic­i­pate big­ger num­bers.
