Tip of the Day
Bench press is a very intense pressing exercise.  In order to keep your body in balance, bench pressing is paired with pulling exercises.  If you create an imbalance in a muscle group, you will notice you will start to have joint issues where those muscle groups are involved.  If you are constantly pressing and you shorten the front, causing a rounded shoulder, you will notice that you develop rotator cuff issues.  Left unfixed, those issues become major problems!  Pressing is always paired with pulling, making you a more well rounded athlete.
