5.  Pull the Bar Apart


The lifter will place an elastic band around their wrists that is tight when they move their hands into their bench position.

The tension on the band has two benefits:

1. Causes the lifter to squeeze the bar harder creating more tension.

MORE TENSION = MORE STRENGTH

2. Forces the lifter to “pull the bar apart”. This not only engages the lats, but increases the tension more.

BENCH IS A FULL BODY LIFT

Engaging the lats improves form and protects the shoulders.
