Shortcut To Strength: Day 37 - Bench Press Strength Focus

Today's all about the bench. Power through today's workout with such ease that it looks like a cakewalk compared to last week's grueling session.

Keep your rep count low and your intensity high in today's workout. If you can't keep good form using heavier weights on the single-joint exercises (dumbbell fly, lateral raise, triceps extension), drop your weight to around your 8RM and finish out your sets there. Don't forget to get in a few warm-up sets and keep your rest periods around 3-5 minutes.
