The Bench Press

ByCrossFitMay 2, 2019

Powerlifting is the sport of three lifts: the bench press, squat, and deadlift. It is a superb start for a lifting program and can be followed later by the more dynamic clean and jerk and snatch. The neuroendocrine response to major lifts like the bench press is so potent that it will increase your strength for other exercises as well. In other words, the general strength gained through improving your bench press will carry over to dips, pull-ups, and many other movements.

Assuming equipment is an issue I would sub/scale to dumbbell bench press. I have used plyo box as bench. Not ideal but better than floor for me. You can probably use kbells instead of db's too. If that fails go to pushups. If you can't weight them, try clapping push ups for extra intensity.
