Exercise Spotlight – Bench Press

Basics of the movement

The bench press, specifically the flat barbell bench press is a popular compound exercise that is a commonly used to measure upper body strength. It involves lying on your back on a bench with your feet planted firmly on the ground, and your shoulder blades tucked in. You hold the barbell in a neutral grip slightly wider than shoulder width apart, and at full extension, your arms should be perpendicular to your torso. You lower the bar slowly, using your core and legs to assist with stabilisation until the bar touches your chest, then using your chest and assisting muscles explosively drive the barbell back to the starting position.

It was planned to utilise some components of the M6 American Heavy Tank and a 100mm gun.

5/3/1 Powerlifting Program Review!


The 5/3/1 Powerlifting Program, otherwise known as Wendler’s 5/3/1 is a linear progression program that was created by none other than Jim Wendler himself. It works by progressively overloading the body with higher weight, and lower reps as the weeks go on. This program is seen as a very effective novice program and is considered one of the most popular workout regimes for people looking to get stronger. It also is quite a flexible program in that you can choose whether to train 3 or 4 days per week. The main premise according to Jim Wendler is to make slow, consistent gains and to beat rep records rather than setting new 1RM’s, which have a greater risk of injury. Basically, if you go from a 5×140 kg squat, to a 7×140 kg squat you have gotten stronger even if you haven’t set a new 1RM. If you are brand new to lifting, you may benefit from performing the lifts more frequently. But for anyone looking to make gradual strength gains with short and efficient training sessions, this program is good for you.
