An exercise where the athlete lays with their back flat on a bench (or other surface) - that is either parallel to the ground, or at an angle - and their feet on the floor, while lifting a weight (or set of weights) from their chest straight up (perpendicular to the floor).
I saw a video of a guy catastrophically fail at benching and drop the bar from an almost locked position. I also learned that he later died of internal injuries. He even had 3 spotters, so I no longer ...
So here is my question: Say on Monday you do the bench press and on Tuesday you do the shoulder press. Can this be okay or is it not enough rest because shoulders and triceps assist with the bench ...
I want to maximize my chest strength, and I know bench press is a large part of that.... Should I do incline or regular bench press more then?
