Rotational drills to prep for bench
Bench press – find a 3RM and then a 1RM
Tricky balance here but given plenty of time, you should be able to find both a 3RM and a 1RM. Let’s make sure we really focus on how to properly set up for the bench; squeezing the butt, bringing the scaps down towards your tailbone, creating a space between the bench and lower back, being active and driving through the heels are all important performance cues. Let’s not simply lay down on the bench and press.
20 DB bench press (50/35#)
20 KB step-ups (53/35#)
The step-ups should be done with 2 KB in the suitcase position. The height of the box should never put the knee above parallel. Going higher than needed does not make it a better exercise but puts your knee at risk. So be smart with the height of the box you use. The bench should be done with 2 heavy DB’s.
Both movements should be hard for 20, so weight will be very different among athletes.
