Weak Bench Press? (NOT ANYMORE)

As mention in the video – here’s the link where you can get free early bird access to the Strong Curves workout program.

Out of the big 3 (squat, bench and deadlift) the bench press is the hardest to develop for most girls who lift.

But not anymore (smiley face)…

In the video above I’m going to give you a little trick that I want you to do before bench that will instantly make you feel stronger, safer and maybe even help set a new PR.

In fact, check out this comment on my video from a girl who used this very technique…

Here’s what I want you to do next time you bench…

Pull the bar apart.

Have you even heard of this before?

It’s an old school powerlifting cue which means you want to literally try and pull the bar apart on the way down and on the way up during your bench press.

However most girls have a hard time understanding what this feels like.

So what you’re going to do is grab a light-medium tension band.

Get into your bench press set up.

And pull the band apart on the way down, hold on your chest for 3-5 seconds and pull apart on the way up as well.

Do this for 2 sets of 10-20 reps as a warm up.

Then when it’s time for your working sets have the exact same feeling with the bar as you did with the band.

And you will immediately feel your back light up, your shoulders feel more stable and your bench press numbers will skyrocket.

I hope you enjoyed this tip, and if you’re truly serious about getting stronger, than you might like my new workout program called Strong Curves.

It’s for girls who love to lift and want to build a strong, fit and athletic hourglass figure – so not skinny or thin (there’s nothing wrong with that, it’s just not who the program is for).

It’s 100% free on the house as a way of saying thank you for visiting my site.
