The bench press is an absolute staple at the gym - it's an active composite movement that strengthens & stabilises the shoulder AND burns a tonne of calories. Whether you're trying to gain muscle or lose fat, a bench press will likely feature in your program.
Although almost every gym-goer will lift a bench press regularly, most don't know very much about what it does to their body - for example, did you know that a bench press isn't just a chest exercise? It's a chest, triceps, and deltoid exercise, and that has significant implications for your shoulder & arm biomechanics.
The most common New Years resolution is to get fit and healthy. Maybe that's why I have been asked by SO many people, what to look for in a PT.
There are a million different answers to that question, depending on what you're looking for from your PT. However, there is, in my opinion, a short list of things to check-off before signing-on to any PT.
