Today's all about the bench. Integrating different versions into your workout will ensure you're targeting different muscles and building combined strength and muscle gains.
Go heavy on your close-grip bench press, and your triceps are sure to take a beating. Your hand positioning—usually less than six inches apart—will allow you to safely handle a heavy load because of the assistance you'll be getting from your chest and front delts. Push through and use your torso to help generate power. After doing a few of these, and seeing the results, you'll be tempted to swear off isolation exercises altogether.
