Barbell bench techniques & How to use wrist wraps

Hey guys, this is quick video showing some of my barbell bench techniques and how to use wrist wraps. I got a new video camera the next videos should be better than these previous videos! Also I just got YouTube partnership last week! Thanks everyone! I've only been on here for a few months so that's pretty cool. I'll film all my workouts and show you guys what I can.

Questions: please write in the comment box below. I won't answer questions anywhere else.

Key points:

– Gripping the bar wide will target your chest better.
– Keep your feet on the ground and legs wide apart for better stability.
– Go as low as you can with the bar; just don't bounce it on your chest.
– Breathe out as you push up
– Wrist wraps help support your wrist for heavy weights- keep them loose if you're not doing your set yet and tighten them up when you're ready to hit your set. Don't wait too long or it'll cut off your blood flow.
-wrist wraps I use are by INZER. I believe they are 20 inch wraps. You can buy them on ebay or I bought mine from (I actually went to their store here and they're pretty cool people)

Next video will probably be Legs or Diet.. whichever one I can enough clips of first.

    1. You DONT have to grip the bar “as wide as possible”. Shoulder width is
    2. Dont look at the bar when you lower it. Unless you’re doing shirted
    benching this isnt necessary.
    3. If you’re going for pure power, you want an arch in your back, while
    keeping your butt and shoulder blades on the bench at all times. Squeeze
    your shoulder blades and flex your quads (legs) throughout the whole press.
    You will still build the chest just as good if you tighten everything up.
    4. Always come down to your chest, without bouncing, and then all the way
    back up. Dont hyper extend the elbows at the top though. ´╗┐

      +Beau Hatcher Bring the bar as low as shoulder joint comfortable.
      Touching the chest with the bar on the eccentric is a lot of stress on the
      rotator cuffs. Not necessary to get a big chest.

    • Beau Hatcher / February 18, 2015

      +MrRossT1 correct. If someone doesnt have a large enough chest, try using a
      folded up shirt or hoodie on the chest.

    • MrRossT1 / February 18, 2015

      +Beau Hatcher Just use a machine. ­čÖé

    A wider grip also puts your shoulders at a vulnerable place.´╗┐

    Sorry but I don’t think you should be giving advice with such poor form.
    Bar needs to touch chest and you were nowhere near lockout each rep either.
    You should use lighter weight that you can use a proper ROM with.´╗┐

    • Codithejedi / October 6, 2015

      +TheLethalDose Racing lol…

    • WheyTooManyGainzz / December 9, 2015

    ain’t trying to knock your hustle, but you should touch the bar to your
    chest. a bunch of bodybuilders will say that stopping an inch above the
    chest is good for stretching the pecs, but stopping that high is hard on
    the elbows. it’s better for the pecs which are are big muscles to stop the
    bar instead of your elbows. arch your back. this will allow you to tuck
    your shoulders in which will protect them. using leg drive will also add
    pushing power for the concentric phase. you can still build a huge powerful
    chest from using a powerlifter style bench press. but still good bench

      What about for a girl? would you give the same advice? cuz it’s kinda
      difficult to let the bar touch my chest without hurting myself…

    • Weight Warriors / April 29, 2016

      +Samantha Stockton yes. what makes it difficult?

    ho w about the gloves u wear´╗┐

  10. Paulo Gomes / December 26, 2015

    you shouldn’t move your head, while doing the rep.´╗┐

    • Paul Hernandez / February 25, 2016

      +Paulo Gomes i do see some guys lifting their head while bench pressing.
      WTF ? spinal aliment is KEY people !

  11. Tashan Duncan / February 6, 2016

    Megaman X6 music i see´╗┐

  12. John Khouzam / February 20, 2016

    go as wide as you can. wtf you talking about, that grip you’re using if
    faking ridiculous´╗┐

    • Stephen Ciccone / March 3, 2016

      +John Khouzam What does that even mean? The guys putting up 315 with ease
      and you’re gonna say he doesn’t know what he’s talking about? How much you
      putting up on the bench?

    • John Khouzam / March 3, 2016

      +Stephen Ciccone im 18 years old and put on 285, @ 160 lbs bodyweight

    • Stephen Ciccone / March 3, 2016

      +John Khouzam That’s very impressive. You should post a video of yourself
      benching with the perfect form so you can show everybody how to bench
      correctly instead of criticizing somebody else.

    • John Khouzam / March 3, 2016


    • Alexis Carvalho / April 19, 2016

      +John Khouzam dude he repped out 315 for 7 without leg drive, arch and
      using his best grip for strength at 180lbs. You’re far from being
      impressive. Keep working on yourself and stop being an hater.

  13. Paul Hernandez / February 25, 2016

    dont lift your head when you bench bro ! important to keep your spinal
    alignment !´╗┐

    • RIP MyNiggaHarambe / April 29, 2016

      Stan efferding lifts his head. it’s to keep your lower back flatter on the
      bench so you can then exert more force when you arch it

  14. Stephen Ciccone / March 3, 2016

    The comments section in this video makes me laugh man… I’d love to see
    you people bench 315.. He’s like less then half an inch away from his chest

  15. Santo Domingo / April 15, 2016

    lmao. 90% of people commenting about form cant even lift themselves out of

  16. LiftOrGTFO / May 19, 2016

    Jeezus 3 plates is beastly. I just recently started lifting 2 plates but I
    can only do 2-3 reps. I’m getting there though.´╗┐

  17. Bryan Taylor / June 10, 2016

    I counted zero reps.´╗┐
