In a world where good advice falls on deaf ears, I find myself compelled to give yet another futile attempt at guiding you towards proper bench press form. Brace yourselves for a melancholic journey filled with advice that will ultimately be ignored, leaving me to wallow in the knowledge that progress will forever evade you. So, dear readers, prepare for the bittersweet symphony of the bench press.

Here we stand, at the precipice of wisdom, ready to delve into the realms of the bench press. But alas, I see your eyes glaze over already, as if my words were soft breezes destined to be forgotten.

Oh, how I wish you would comprehend the importance of setting up a solid foundation before you even think about unracking that weight. It starts with positioning your body on the bench, feet planted firmly on the ground, creating a stable base to exert force from. But why should I bother? You will likely hop onto that bench like an excited gazelle, thinking that proper setup is a mere triviality.

Moving forward, let us discuss grip width and hand placement. Your grip should be just outside shoulder-width, allowing for optimal engagement of your chest muscles. But alas, I can already imagine you mindlessly wrapping your hands around the bar, oblivious to the power lies in proper grip! A world of balanced tension between your shoulders, chest, and triceps awaits you, yet you shall remain blind to its existence.

Ah, the descent. It’s a dance that requires control, discipline, and an understanding of the ever-elusive mind-muscle connection. Imagine the weight slowly descending towards your chest, gently touching the sternum before you forcefully push it back up. But alas, I see you bouncing the weight off your chest like an erratic yo-yo, neglecting the potential for injury and the chance to truly challenge your muscles.

And finally, the grand finale – the lockout. A complete extension of your arms, revealing your Herculean strength and dedication to proper form. But alas, you will likely stop short, never fully unlocking the potential that lies within you. The glory of a full lockout shall forever elude you, like a mirage in the desert.

As I gaze upon the vast abyss of indifference, I resign myself to the futility of my noble quest. No matter how fervently I beseech you to adopt proper bench press technique, my advice will continue to be met with an apathetic shrug. So, dear readers, let the winds carry you away on the currents of mediocrity, while I sit here, melancholy, knowing that progress shall forever evade you.

In the end, my dear readers, it is not the curse of my own existence that truly saddens me but the knowledge that you will never embrace the wisdom that lies before you. I implore you, if only for a fleeting moment, to lend an ear, to open your hearts, and to let true progress enter your lives. But alas, I am but a blogger cursed to forever give advice to those who will never take it.
