What are everyone’s thoughts on Bench press to neck. I recently read an article that incoporated this exercise. I have never heard of the technique nor have I have witnessed it being practiced. I was just wondering what peoples opinions were on the exercise, its effectiveness, and any other useful information about it.
What are your goals?
I personally don’t like it. But I don’t lift for bb purposes. Some claim it stresses the chest more???I think it puts too much stress on the shoulders and limits the weight that can be pushed.
To me, there are so many good/safe exercises out there that I choose to put myself at as little risk as possible. And for me, when I weigh out the benefit analysis, it isn’t positive.[/quote]
It does work your chest more, thats why some people do it.
But it puts your shoulders in a vulnerable position. I would recomend doing it. But if you feel any discomfort in your shoulders, stop immediately.
I vary rarely do them. Because of the delt strain and I have good shoulder flexibility.
Take your hands and put them on opposite shoulders. Raise your elbows up as high as you can. If you feel any pain, don’t do that exercise.
Shoulders are the one thing you don’t wanna fuck with. If you mess them up, you may never recover.
