Mesocycles Course – Lesson 10: Bench Best Practices

Mesocycles Course

Lesson 10: Bench Best Practices

In the following lesson, Mike Tuchscherer continues his discussion on the best practices for each lift, now covering the bench press.

In Mike’s RTS, the bench press is afforded with 6 slots: 3 for Primary and 3 for Secondary emphasis movements (see figures).

Mike continues by explaining exercise selections based on the weak points and ROM, as well as weak muscles (see figures).

According to Mike, bench press needs and can be afforded generally higher intensity, higher volume and higher frequency. Please check the video for further discussion on the best practices for improving bench press.
