Flat bench press is popular.
Compare penis size.
How much ya bench?
But popular doesn’t mean effective…or most effective
Illusory effect: more we see, more we believe True…even if isn’t.
Bench popular because powerlifting.
For clarity’s sake…
Powerlifting = a sport where athletes compete in the (a) bench press, (b) squat, and (c) deadlift to see who can lift the most weight across all three lifts.
Are you powerlifter?
Why flat benching?
Or benching at all?
Angle of arm relative to torso changes chest activation. Consider arm at 90 degrees relative to torso to be tare. If you go above 90 degrees, you’re more upper chest…for a bit. But then you reach point where shoulders take most load.
If you go below 90 degrees, you’re more lower chest.
People get confused…
Flat bench with back arch (common technique) is NOT benching with arm at 90 degrees. More like pressing below 90 degrees, which shifts emphasis to lower boobies.
Most dudes want (and lack) upper boobies. So why flat bench press?
Stop comparing penis size. Swallow ego. Stop all flat benching.
Unnecessary and counter productive.
Instead do incline presses.
30 degree for best upper boobies.
Higher is OK, but will be more shoulders.
