Is the Flat Barbell Bench Press Right For You?
In this video, Redcon1 Head Trainer Joe Bennett explores whether or not the flat bench press is the right movement for you. It's important that every exercise you choose in your workout has a specific purpose. If your goal is to build bigger pecs and your structure is not suited for flat bench press, then you should consider using another chest exercise or switch the degree of incline or decline on the bench. From a technical standpoint, keep the bar path lined up with the fibers of your pecs and shoulders for optimal positioning. Sometimes a small tweak in your form can make the world of a difference in the results you see.
