''Bench Press 5-5-5-5-5'' (08.22.2012)
Work through the following sets/reps with immaculate form, going only as heavy as ideal technical execution allows. Those that have been Bench Pressing or Pressing regularly during the past month will be free to chase a new 5 rep maximum if they wish. Athletes just getting back into the fight will be working through challenging sets no greater than 75% of any previous personal record (as a guideline for safety and to help ensure the focus remains on refreshing/establishing proper mechanics through the lift).

Bench Press 5-5-5-5-5

Notes: The Bench Press movement is commonly deceptive as it appears to be overwhelmingly simple to perform, which is usually why there tends to be such a main stream fitness disposition to shoulder injury during training through it, this is why we will be refreshing and reinforcing the appropriate technique for this lift today. The transfer of strength gained through proper lifting technique here is invaluable and often overlooked... Get excited. Day by day our crew is making gains once again in the new Stable... YESSSSSS.
