Bench Press (15 Min of Sets of 5 Reps)

Focus: Feeling just as much tension throughout the rest of your body as you do in the pressing muscles themselves.

Observe: Glutes, upper back, core, legs…

Weights to be lifted: Start with empty bar and increase the weight with (2.5 lbs for women and 5 lbs for guys) added on each side on each set. Continue to increase the weight on each set but make sure you don’t get to a weight where your focus moves from your set-up and ability to observe tension throughout your body, over to just trying to get the weight up.

Weight check: Bar should remain stable, and you should be able to press it up at almost the same speed on all your sets and reps.

Goal is maybe a 75% (10RM) load but we keep it at 5 reps. If you get there and still have time, do a couple more sets at the same weight. Ideally you’ll complete a total of 7+ sets of 5 reps including all the warm-up sets in the 15 minutes.

We don’t do bench press enough to push heavy so listen to your coach and stay tight and light.
