Blaguna Rajani. Bench. March 03rd , 2017.
Powerlifters lift the heaviest weights in the world. The world record for bench press is held by a powerlifter, not a bodybuilder. It then makes sense from a purely common sense stand point to model what this group of people do. Secondarily, the science backs it. Training in a lower rep range (which we will go in depth on below) works for strength and power, which is exactly what we are looking for.
Personally the top of my bench press is my weak point. I can push a lot of weight halfway up from my chest, but finishing the movement has always been a struggle. The fix; floor press, close grip bench press, and Tate press.
Chalk at its core does one thing, it allows for a more firm and secure grip of a bar. When you bench heavy you want every muscle working together to get that bar off of your chest. Your forearms included. Chalking up your hands and the bar will allow you to have a more secure and firm grip, when you squeeze your heart out it will now go the extra mile. Try it, chalk helps, it really does.
