it's an article about a guy's personal experience so it's pretty much impossible to disagree with it.
Yea I was more meant has anyone tried it, like Chris, Maine, Gogz, Ray etc...
strong shoulders are very important especially in raw benching. you dont need to worry about anything specific make sure you are doing an equal amount of overhead, incline, flat, decline, etc. also i have no idea why you are so piss weak at this stuff
in conclusion.... If i train strictly overhead, i will add 94 lbs to my bench...
I need to find that doctor that tweaked his shoulder..so that he can tweak mine too. (and i will be stronger, faster, leaner, and better in bed)

overhead work also involves a great deal of triceps, usually when you are overhead pressing with such a narrow grip the triceps take the bulk of the load after the bar passes your head, and obviously, tricep strength is clutch with elbows-tucked benching
dude, just bench, my max went from 190-215 from just trying to focus on good technique
Be less technical and just do it more often...as long as your form is at check and you are actually doing the lifts I dont see why you wouldnt be improving.
Consistency and staying injury free are the keys!! Keep hammering it and be patient, it will come!! Also, anytime you diet or lose weight, your bench is the first to get weaker.
It happens to me and I've always assumed it's because it's a larger muscle group and it takes more muscle effort/energy to do. When you eat less food, it cuts your energy, and causes the bigger muscle groups to take a hit.
I also notice a drop in my back exercises, but not as much.
My bench went significantly up while I was cutting last year...
Werd. it drives me nuts. Good to know that its not just me.
fuck....and I was thinking of trimming some of the fat off after the meet.....I don't want to have to put a shirt on to bench 225 again....
My ego is hurtin. I havent benched more than 225 since I started Purs routine a month and a half ago. : /
this is good advice, and for me this has/is holding true
Yes standing overhead presses are good they help develop:
I know but I was thinking of just ditching benching and just doing OH presses
just be a good morning specialist
I do and right now it just keeps going down or stays the same
how in the fuck can your bench be going down...
God hates me
what do you bench?
1pl for 3-4 on a good day
are you fucking serious? you can do 135 3-4 times??
ummm.. im speechless
a pole vaulter chick i knew in highschool benched 145 5x once at the ymca
