I just had to include a how to Upper Body strengthening using the Bench press at this website. Years ago I used to go to the gym and excercise routinely almost every day. The feeling I got from those workouts was something I just loved! Getting motivated again. I found on my own that the Bench Press did more for my upperbody strength and physique than any other excercise. I will never forget the day I walked into the gym weighing in at around 180 pounds and did a clean double of 370 pounds on the Bench Press. Then I did 382 1/2 pounds ! That is not me below I was not quite that strong. Ahhh those were the days…….Ron
Have You Ever Wondered Why People Are So Obsessed With The Bench Press?
I first figured it out when I went out for the wrestling team.
It didn’t matter if it was at school with my friends… at work with my co-workers… or at the gym with my lifting buddies… everyone would always ask me, “How Much Do You Bench?”

3 Reasons Why You’ll Want to Focus on Increasing Your Bench Press
|As you probably already know… having a big bench press is like a badge of honor. Plain and simple… it gets you respect and attention in almost every area of your life. It’s a measuring stick that you use with your buddies. The one with the biggest bench is usually the most respected. The strongest is usually the most respected (and most feared!)|
|Having a big bench usually means you’re strong and in shape. In fact football coaches in college are dead serious about knowing how much an athlete can bench press and tested it several times a year. You see they know something that most people don’t…..|
|Increasing your bench press will also increase the amount of muscle mass you have on your entire body! It’s true… and it’s because of 2 reasons. First, when you keep lifting more and more weight, your body must add muscle mass so that it can handle that additional stress (weight) you’re placing on it. And second, heavy intense lifts like the bench press releases anabolic hormones into your bloodstream… things like testosterone and human growth hormone. These are the male muscle builders that help you pack on muscle.|
