Bench press is a great exercise for building strength in your shoulders, chest and triceps. to get the most out of this exercise it's important to have good technique! the following video will give you the basics of how to do the barbell bench press. As with most exercises, it's sometimes hard to monitor your own form while you are actually doing the exercise. Having your PT correct you while performing the lift will give you a better chance of developing good technique habits. It's also important to make sure the weight isn't to heavy. If you use a weight that is to heavy, you'll lose form and build bad habits. In the long term you will be way in front by slowly developing good exercise technique.
An important note to make is that you need to make sure that you balance this exercise out by working the opposing muscle groups. exercises like bent over barbell row, dumbbell bent row, bent lateral raises and seated row are great for balancing out the strength in your upper body and helping to maintain good posture and healthy shoulders joints. I will be putting up videos on these exercises and more over the coming weeks and months.
