Push/pull. The bench press is often thought as one of the least functional movements. Thinking about the mechanics, the strength and technique trained doesn’t truly transfer to everyday activity. However, because of all the pulling we do in CrossFit, pull-ups, cleans, snatches, it is very important to build the opposing muscle to the pull. Keeping the shoulder healthy is imperative and making sure it is strong in its entirety. This is why the bench is incorporated. Also, the push-up is a very functional movement AND it makes your burpees better. Therefore it makes the bench press one of the best movements there is. So wear your tank top and come get your pec on.
