Incline Bench Press
Keep your shoulder blades pulled together and tight
This is a very important and often overlooked aspect of great bench pressing. While pressing you have to create the most stable environment possible. This can’t be done if most of your shoulder blades are off the bench. When you pull your shoulder blades together you’re creating a tighter, more stable surface from which to press.

Training for the tough stuff
Endurance machine Jamie Williams is gearing up for a massive 2015 in preparation for his October stint at the World’s toughest Ironman Triathlon in Kona Hawaii. With slow twitch endurance type work coming much more naturally to him, Jamie has put a big emphasis on testing his strength and anaerobic capacity to kickstart the year.
He’s been a regular at our high intensity Conditioning sessions and he’s shown some great post-Xmas strength with Assessment scores of 50 good quality Push Ups, 12 Chin Ups, a 73kg Incline Press and a very deep 78kg Squat, which for at 6 foot 3 ain’t too bad at all. Keep firing Ironman!
