Bench Press Workout + Build Bulletproof Shoulders!

If you want to continue gaining strength on the bench press, try this Dynamic Effort Bench Press workout. It’s a great way of not only building explosive power but also introducing accommodating resistance into your training.

Be careful, though!

Shoulder injuries from the bench press are very common. However, you can prevent a lot of injuries and build bulletproof shoulders by balancing your shoulder development. Most guys who do heavy pressing exercises often neglect the opposing muscles such as the rear delts.
