We talk mostly about supplements that boost testosterone but I want to make sure we’re not putting the cart before the horse. We also want to focus on training. Without strength training your results with any supplement will be extremely limited. We’re going to focus on a specific and extremely popular life: boosting your bench press.
Tips for Bench Press
Bench press is one of the most measured exercises for strength. It’s also one of the key powerlifting exercises. Bench press mainly uses your chest but you’re also recruiting your shoulders and triceps throughout the lift. Here are a few tips on how to get stronger on bench press.
– Dedicate two days each week for bench pressing
– Make one day a heavy day doing several sets going up in weight each set
– Don’t burn out on the lighter sets on your heavy day
– Have a power and speed bench day
– Learn proper form for the bench press (keeping your bottom on the bench, clinching your shoulder blades, and pressing with heels of your feet)
– Eat plenty of food the day before your heavy day
– Get adequate rest and recovery
– Take a reliable testosterone booster and other muscle building supplements like BCAAs and creatine
Thought you’re focused on bench press on your chest days you should also perform other exercises like incline bench press and flyes. You want to work every fiber in your chest. Every part of your chest needs to be built up and strong. You may want a day of rest after your heavy bench press day as well.
Don’t neglect your other muscles while training for a stronger bench press. For example, squats and deadlifts will boost your overall strength. And strength training doesn’t mean you should cut out cardio. Doing cardio helps break up lactic acid and you also don’t want to carry extra body fat. You cardio may be minimized but you should perform cardio at least 3 times a week, 20-30 minutes each session.
