DescriptionThis four hour workshop takes students through the basics of coaching and spotting the “Bench Press”. Traditionally the Bench Press was used by athletes and fitness enthusiasts as the staple of building a big, strong chest. Over the years, as a result of many studies and fitness innovations, we have learned that performing the chest press in different planes and surfaces actually increases the limited functionality of the traditional “Bench Press” During this workshop we examine the traditional “Bench Press” and master it’s performance and spotting techniques while also learning different alternatives and combinations to target the Pertoralis Major, Minor, and all secondary movers involved.
ObjectivesAll students will be able to: Identify correct -vs- incorrect form on the traditional bench press Describe the anatomy of the bench press Coach a new or veteran client on the proper recommended performance of the bench press Use variation in rep range tempo to elicit specific adaptations Understand the different angles and positions that affect the functional aspect of pressing
OutlineThis is a four hour active participation with very little theoretical components. Class begins and ends on the gym floor where all participants individually practice performing and spotting the chest press in six different positions and surfaces under expert supervision offered by one of our NFPT Master Trainers and Instructors.
