Our friend Richard Schuller, authority on fitness for men and women over 60, has been a guest in our home this week and we’ve been having a blast together. At 70 years of age, that “old dog” is teaching this “young pup” some new tricks when it comes to improving strength and performance.
Richie, as my kids like to call him pulled me aside while we were working out yesterday and gave me some great pointers on my bench press. Of course I couldn’t keep these great tips to myself, so today Richard and I pulled out the video camera to pass this great advice onto you.
In this video you will discover the most common mistakes that men and women make when performing the bench press, which opens the door for injuries. Note: The bench press is an exercise that is meant to target your pectoral muscles, yet the way many people perform the bench press they are actually recruiting very little muscle fiber from the pectoral muscles and placing most of the load on the triceps and shoulder muscle fibers instead. That’s why you hear of so many men and women screwing up their shoulders while performing the bench press.
Don’t worry though. After watching this video you will have the knowledge on how to perform a safe and effective bench press that will increase your power and significantly reduce the risk of injury.
