We’ve recently received questions regarding what can be done besides traditional bench moves (floor press, pin press, board press) to build the lockout in the bench press as the main movement.
We rotate incline barbell presses in on a regular basis on Max Effort Upper days(the bars, accommodating resistant, and angle are varied). As the incline increases, the more triceps, delts, and upper back get involved. All three of these groups play major roles in the bench.
