Are you tired of feeling embarrassed at the gym and not getting the gains you desire from your bench press? Look no further – in this post, I’ll teach you how to master perfect form for maximum gains! But hold up, I already know you won’t follow my advice anyways…

Okay, let’s get started. First things first, always warm up properly. Get your blood flowing and loosen up those muscles, unless you want to end up with an injury that will keep you out of the gym for weeks. But of course, you probably won’t bother with warming up and rush straight into the bench press like a bull in a china shop.

Now, onto proper form. You want to make sure your feet are firmly planted on the ground, and your butt and shoulders are pressed firmly against the bench. Hold the bar with a grip that is slightly wider than shoulder-width, and make sure your forearms are perpendicular to the floor. Inhale deeply, then lower the bar towards your chest – but don’t let it touch! Exhale as you push the bar back up to the starting position. Repeat for your desired number of reps.

But oh wait, you’re probably going to arch your back, bounce the bar off your chest, and use your entire body to lift the bar instead of focusing on the chest muscles. Sigh.

To truly see progress, you must follow proper form every time. Don’t let your ego get the best of you and pile on more weight than you can handle with good form. It’s better to lift less weight with proper form than to lift more weight with bad form that could lead to injuries.

In conclusion, bench pressing with perfect form is the key to maximum gains and injury prevention. But of course, I already know most of you won’t follow my advice and will continue making the same mistakes. Oh well, at least I tried.
