Bench Press For Muscle Gain.
If You’re Not Focusing On The Bench Press… You’re Missing Out On A Ton of Muscle and Strength That Could Be Yours!
That’s the SINGLE BIGGEST reason you need to start focusing on lifting more weight on the bench: So you can gain more muscle mass!
Not only that… the bench press is a very intense and demanding exercise for your entire body.
When you do a heavy and intense bench press… you can shock your muscles into growing faster than they usually would. And because of the intensity of the bench, your body releases a ton of anabolic hormones into your bloodstream. Things like testosterone and human growth hormone.
So bottom line… if you focus on increasing your bench press… and the amount of weight you lift on the bench press, you WILL gain muscle and lose fat. And as a result… you’ll look bigger, more muscular, and also leaner.
Again, I’ve seen it time and time again.
Have You Ever Wondered Why People Are So Obsessed With The Bench Press?
I used to ask myself, what’s the big deal with the bench press anyway?
It didn’t matter if it was at school with my friends… at work with my co-workers… or at the gym with my lifting buddies… everyone would always ask me, “How Much Do You Bench?”
But over time, as I became more informed about exercise and muscle growth… I soon learned that the bench press did a lot more for your body than just about any other exercise.
3 Reasons Why You’ll Want to Focus on Increasing Your Bench Press
- As you probably already know… having a big bench press is like a badge of honor. Plain and simple… it gets you respect and attention in almost every area of your life. It’s a measuring stick that you use with your buddies. The one with the biggest bench is usually the most respected. The strongest is usually the most respected (and most feared!)
- Having a big bench usually means you’re strong and in shape. In fact most football coaches in college are dead serious about knowing how much you can bench press and test it several times a year. You see they knew something that most people don’t…
- Increasing your bench press will also increase the amount of muscle mass you have on your entire body! It’s true… and it’s because of 2 reasons. First, when you keep lifting more and more weight, your body must add muscle mass so that it can handle that additional stress (weight) you’re placing on it. And second, heavy intense lifts like the bench press releases anabolic hormones into your bloodstream… things like testosterone and human growth hormone. These are the male muscle builders that help you pack on muscle.
The bench press is not just about boosting your ego, having a head turning upper body, or about the ability to push people around on the field.
When done correctly (which most people don’t) the bench press uses every single muscle in your body. You stimulate the chest, shoulders, triceps, biceps, your back and even your LEGS.
