Dave Tate discusses bench form with Josh Hachat.
Dear Dave and Josh,
Thank you very much for this most valuable and easy to understand bench press seminar.
I loved to watch both series on bench pressing as well as squatting (by Matt Wenning) and learned a lot.
Dave, you asked Josh at the beginning whether he wants to go for bodybuilding or mainly focuses on increasing strength. He opted for strength. Thus, I assume that you were showing the optimal power lifting technique for bench pressing.
Hence, I would like to kindly ask you whether you can please explain the difference and most important points I have to take care regarding technique when the focus lies on building up the chest muscle using basic exercises like bench press.
My second question is, whether there will also be a seminar “So You Think You Can Deadlift?”.
This would complete the series of the three main power lifts.
Thanks a lot in advance.
Gotta say.. i’ve watched this series probably 5 times now, and EVERY single time i watch it, i always learn something new, or something that didn’t make sense before, suddenly makes sense.
These videos were and still are instrumental in progression on my bench
Good Job fellas
thank you dave you are the best
Thanks again, for this video. I have been weight training for several years now ~11 but only recently began lifting. I always return to this video (as well as the squat and dead lift versions) before my specific lift that day so that I can further reinforce and continue to learn the technique that you and your site provide. It is very much appreciated and I have been able to lift more then I have ever been able to – while not trying to jump up in weight until my form is sufficient.
Great vids, good audio cues, the shoulder rotation is important for bent over row also, thanks!
One thing, why no collars on your bars?
Just a quick follow up, followed all your suggestions today at the gym, huge difference to the comfort of the lift at higher weights.
I found though that normally I can go do a few sets of incline press after my normal bench, but today I was totally f*cked. Is this normal? Have I actually hit chest this time during my bench, and the fact that I could inclien press afterwards normally meant that I was infact hitting other muscles?
I usually do not comment, however I looked at a lot of comments here So You Think You Can Bench (Parts1-7).
I do have some questions for you if you do not mind. Is it just me or do some of the responses come across as if they are left by brain dead visitors?
And, if you are posting at additional social sites, I’d like to follow you. Would you make a list of the complete urls of all your public sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
