I really like the commentary on really squeezing your shoulder blades together. It is one of the most important things to do when setting yourself up in my opinion to tuck your shoulders back, lock them back, squeeze and press. A friend of mine actually hurt his shoulder by using poor form and not locking his shoulders into place. Sloppy benching like this can really take a toll on the body if you practice it enough.

One resource that helped me a ton was actually a program called critical bench. It is chalk full of tips and tricks that you wouldn’t really think of that actually make a huge difference in your bench when implemented correctly. I actually wrote a little review of the program anyone can check out-

Wonderful insights. One of the difficulties with the emphasis on functional training (and I approve this approach) is that it has inspired many trainers to introduce training modalities to their clients that they are not prepared for.

You mentioned creating competitions and games in the weight room. I would love to get some examples of… well all of them. Anything would be appreciated.

Someone finally said the obvious.
I’ve noticed so many people get obsessive, recording everything, following a strict programme, etc, forgetting the body doesn’t work this way – it responds to stress in different ways depending on the day.

Brilliant post, this is now the way I use weights as a track & field athlete, and it has made the world of difference.
