Naiara Reinders. Bench. August 02nd , 2017.
Almost all of us have some degree of difference with respect to the strength of our left and right hands. This, at times, leads to disproportionate growth in the left and right regions of the chest, depending on the individual arm strength. So, the best way to get a symmetrical upper body is to use dumbbells, since the effective weight to be raised by each arm is the same.
This is often chosen over the other two techniques of doing bench press, as it allows the person to lift more weight than the other two positions. To do the exercise, position yourself on a free weight decline machine and place your hands on the bar at a little more than shoulder width distance. Lift the barbell off the rack and slowly bring it down closer to your chest, but do not rest it on your chest. Then slowly push the bar back to the starting position, straighten your hands, and lock your elbows.
For a power-lifting routine, it is advisable to start off with about 175 pounds of weight. One needs to carry out a few repetitions for each set, and then alter the amount of weight you lift with each subsequent sitting. For instance, if one follows the routine on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, then on the first day, one should lift 175 pounds of weight with 5 repetitions, and then with 4 repetitions and so on, for 5 sets. The routine would be as follows:
The bench set looks solid and heavy but is actually very lightweight meaning it can be placed anywhere and then moved according to preference.
