I tried out floor presses yesterday. They felt pretty good, and it seems like I can handle more weight on the floor press than the bench (or do more reps for a given weight).
I’ve looked at my bench vs floor press and it doesn’t look like the distance the bar travels is too different. Am I right or just not seeing properly?
I’m seriously considering using the floor press as a main assistance movement for bench for a while because it feels good but the groove feels very similar to my bench.
Bench press, 2x264 lbs
Floor press, 5x231 lbs
My main questions are:
Am I floor pressing right?
Is it normal to floor press more than bench, and what does it say about my benching?
