Good bench pressers tend to know proper set up and technique, which is where most lifters go wrong right off the bat. The average gymgoer’s bench press form is absolutely horrific, so just having decent technique automatically confers a big advantage. Furthermore, good benchers tend to be more aware of specialized set and rep schemes, protocols, and programs. Way too many lifters enter the gym with a blind eye and have no real method to their madness; they simply lift as much as they can every time they go into the gym or perform the same load, set, and rep scheme week in and week out.
For my One to One and Online Coaching clients, I go over everything from proper setup and form to different methodologies for increasing either maximum strength (1RM) or rep records along with who should be using them.
