Restart Your Workout

February 07, 2013

Has progress with your bench press workout stalled? The answer to your problem maybe taking a dip and I don't mean in a pool! Try adding parallel bar dips to your workout. The dips can build deltoids, triceps and forearm muscle, all areas that are critical for a successfull bench press workout. Begin the exercise in the upright position on the bars, supporting your weight with arms fully extended. Lower yourself to mid chest level, then push back up to the starting position. The exercise is even more effective when you hang weights from your workout belt for maximum resistance. You'll get a boost in your bench press if you do three sets of five to eight reps per day using as much weight as you can. As always don't over do it. Start with a little weight and work your way up!
