    Its one of the most fun lifts, and having a higher bench than someone else is one of the most popular ways to claim physical superiority

      bench is easily the most impressive ego lift or way to mog on people in the gym, and it's easily the most psychologically terrifying/impressive one... in no other exercise do you have so much weight in a position to fall on you and injure yourself, and that's definitely part of what makes it look so impressive.

      OP if you are hurting your shoulder from bench you are 100% doing it with terrible form and you sound like someone who has been lifting for only a month, who gets on the bench and just wrenches their shit around trying to get the bar up. Depress scaps, create tension in back by activating lats, lock shoulders back/down, tuck elbows... anyone not doing this most basic form work deserves to have a shoulder impingement

        Nah, for bench weight to be scary, you need to be well out of dyel status. 2plate on your chest is really not a big deal.

        high level roidaroo squatting and these retarded kids doing super narrow grip on squats and breaking their arms
        >hurting your shoulder from bench you are 100% doing it with terrible form
        Ive found its grip, arch, and volume related.

        people have died with less than 2pl8

        bench is great if your goal is to bench more

        but if your goal is to build a chest and get strong, there's way better alternatives

        you are doing bench wrong if you main goal is to hit pecs and you aren't really getting it. wider grip, flatter arch, and less elbow tuck works well

    It's fine but much better with a cambered bar

    However for max chest gains for muscle you should be doing flies whatever variations you want that is the chest muscles job to adduct your arms

      How do you bench without adducting your arms, retard?

        Anon is talking about the ROM not the fact benching doesn't cause addiction hence the mention of cambered bars as they let your stretch go even deeper

      Id put myself in the category. 10 years ago you’d have to queue up to use the bench press, now I dont see anyone else using it except for me. I guess times have changed.

    I hated bench and all but refused to do it because I was a gay oly memer and thought that it was just a dumb bro lift and all I needed was muh squats
    Now that I got my bench to 3pl8, I'm realizing that bench is king and only hate myself for being weak at bench
    One day I will bench 4pl8. That'll show all those kids who bullied me in high school ten years ago. I'll fucking show them.

    This and bicep curls are whats shown in every movie when someone is “working out” its popular because its in pop culture. But aside from that, its a compound lift, which benefits everything else you do. You should be doing them all if you want to get stronger and have a balanced physique. Id ask you to post body, but i already know you dont lift. Go back to /mlp/

    The only time I actually hurt my shoulder from benching, was when I had a friend peer pressure me into benching 2 plates with no warmup on my leg day. But that was for obvious reason. Other than that, I’m almost at 3pl8s and my shoulders feel great.

    I’ve seen more shoulder injuries from dumbbell press than barbell bench. My guess is because the barbell is a fixed position, you can’t lower the bar past your chest. Where as all the meme lifters who only do dumbbells because “Muh extra stretch” think that means to lower the dumbbells way lower than you’re supposed to go as opposed to bringing the dumbbells closer at the top of the movement

        its a good tool to target chest. you could do all machines, like many bodybuilders do, and grow a good chest

        it's genuinely a better movement for hypertrophy. it goes inward at a slight angle so the handles almost touch at the top of the movement. maximum pec activation
