What is powerlifting? Powerlifting is a sport that consists of three lifts, the squat, dead lift, and bench press performed at maximum weight. Simple right, lift as much weight as possible and garner the largest total you can. This sounds like a perfect blueprint for what we want to do with the bench press. Mimicking the training style of power lifters makes sense for two reasons, one obvious and one more scientific.
Go out and take a walk in the park right now. Do you like the benches there? Sure, they are well planned, very robust and maybe even in a good shape. Are they comfortable enough? Are they in sunny or shady places? Large enough? Do you see where I am going to? There are many things that make a bench good or bad. It's not just to go out and buy the first bench you see. It takes planning and evaluation.
The Tate press is a great finishing exercise for your bench training days. The Tate press simulates a bench press but only engages your triceps. We still want to go heavy here, but not quite as much, think 8-10 reps per set.
