Speed Bench Progression


#1

What do you think of this Idea:

Week 1: Straight weight
Week 2: One Mini Band(wrapped below the bench)
Week 3: Two Mini Bands
Week 4: add a few punds, goto week 1.

So I get a varying intensity all the time and hopefully not frying my CNS too much.

Thank's for replys

Ah... and I'm a beginner with a 242 bench so the weights shouldn't be too demanding anyways.

What is your goal? Are you trying to increase bar speed? There isn't enough info.

If youre a beginner you may not even need speed bench, and you DEFINITELY dont need bands and chains


#4

Totally agree on those points.
