Upper Body Push Techniques
Upper Body Push Training
Techniques related to upper body pushing movements, such as the bench press and movements to supplement the bench press
These are lifts that you can use as a primary movement in a upper body 'push' session, or Bench Day
These are lifts that you can use as an accessory to your primary movement in an upper body 'push' session, or Bench Day. Program accessories to strengthen weak points in your range of motion, or address technical deficiencies.
Some accessories could also be substituted for the primary movement, depending on the specificity of the accessory, and the point in your program (how far out you are from a competition).
Supplemental lifts are used to address a specific weakness or muscle. They are non-specific to the primary, or competition lifts. They may work the same, or some of the same muscles, but are different movement patterns and may use different energy systems.
