Quick question on Bench Press being a long limbed lifter. I just read your article on the Bench Press not being the king of exercises. For me, as you suggested, being long limbed the Bench Press targets my pecs really well, but also comes with greater risk of shoulder issues, which I do feel the extended stretch at bottom.
You suggested for long limb lifters that Incline Press or Floor Press to be better options. I measured my Floor Press and 2 Board Press and they were equal in range of motion. When I do the 2 Board Press I still feel my chest in the movement along with greater feel/control in my triceps.
- So my questions is, is it adequate to use the 2 Board Bench Press as my long term main big money horizontal pressing movement over the full range Bench Press? Any draw backs or likely a better long term approach ie Strength & Size gains for my body type?
Thanks for he help,
