Benefits of Bench Press
- This is an essential routine if you want more intense strength training along with gaining mass. Here, you can add as much resistance as you want by adding weights to the barbell.
- While doing so, you have the option of going for positive or negative training. You just have to lower the bar for negative training, and push the bar back up for positive training.
- It also allows you to work your upper body parts individually. This happens, because you are lying on the bench, and your lower back does not come into play. You can also choose to work separately on your chest and triceps, which cannot happen while doing push ups.
- Even a very heavy person can work out with this exercise, whereas he may be unable to do a single push up.
