What is Your Favorite Way to Increase Your Bench?

Just curious what other people use to increase their bench besides just benching more. If I had to choose 2 things it would be weighted dips and pin presses.

Gaining weight


Heavy CG bench + get stronger on chest supported rows

What @GorillaMon says along with old school behind the neck press

Curious you posted regarding seated over head press upping your bench in September. Change your mind?

No still use it.

So size gets you strength? Or strength gets size

Gaining weight reduces ROM and improves leverages.

Could you expand on this claim

It’s no claim.

Have a 40" chest and 26" long arms. See how far you need to bring the bar down to bench. Now, have a 50" chest and 26" long arms. Note the difference in ROM.
