This is the beginning of an upper body workout with some crazy college athletes - the energy is high and the strength is pretty freaky as well.
Note how we hype them up with a few quick sets of plyometrics and medicine ball throws.
Check these bruddahs out...
Before these college athletes ever touched a barbell we needed them to achieve some "benchmarks".
No need for them to bench if they weren't demonstrating a foundation of strength to bench press.
Push ups, dips, kettlebell pressing, band training and even pushing movements with a sled.
Once a solid foundation is built, teaching athletes how to bench press is MUCH easier.
What bench marks do you have before someone can bench press?
