Everyone is familiar with the classic bench press, but actually giving it a go can be pretty intimidating. The key to pulling off this basic (not to mention, crazy-effective) move is proper form. Not sure what that looks like? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.
The bench press is not only one of the best overall chest strengtheners out there, it’s also a great foundation for many other movements and activities. Not only will it improve your pushups, but great news for all you yogis out there: it’s awesome for chaturanga as well. Last, but not least, it also targets your triceps, making this move an upper-body home run.
