For someone who competes in bench only meets, would it be better to work the lower body for power with low reps, heavier weights, or use a more ‘bodybuilder’ type approach with higher reps and lower weight?
How much of a carry over to the bench will a person get from power training the lower body? Would there be a benefit to the better recovery and lower injury risk of higher rep work?
I should note also that I compete bench only due to a lower body disability. I can safely perform box squats and rack pulls. I currently perform box squats for power, with higher reps on the rest of my lower body work.
