The bench press is one of the best upper-body exercises you can possibly perform, it’s key for upper-body muscle development as well as strength building. Many think of the bench press as only a chest exercise but in reality it involves your triceps, shoulders, back and even glutes when done properly. However, while the bench press has a lot of benefits if done incorrectly it can become disastrous. Have you been bench pressing without giving much thought to your technique? Maybe it’s time that you stop doing so before it’s too late.
