ron’s latest videos and rants: all aspects of the Balance
We’re… doing serious stuff today. Later on, we’re going to go break in to a house and save some kitty cats and some orphans. Sure, it’s not on fire, but that’s beside the point. You’ve got to practice. Our next sequence in real traditional powerlifting, the bench press, real bench pressing. Not like these boneheads you see at the gym with their feet flying all over the place. They’re grunting, and they’re squinting. They’re chalking up, and they’re going, “One more.” We hate those guys. So do you.
Today, we’re going to learn a real traditional bench press. You’re going to learn how to pull your feet back, create the arch. We’re going to get rid of my hammer first of all. Second of all, we’re going to get into the traditional position here. Here’s what you see at the gym. You see stuff like this. Feet are all over. These guys are doing this stuff. I’m not even going to do it because it’s too dangerous.
A real traditional powerlifting rack, which is the setup of your body, is feet back. Feet back, you’ve got to arch. Chest is up. You’re coiled like a spring. What you do is you tighten up your whole body, take it off the rack. Pause, breathe in. Pause and punch it, and then back. No flailing arms. No foolish stuff going on just good, clean technique.
It’s that time of year again, kids, where we start giving back to the community. Here we are with the St. Joe’s Fire and Rescue. St. Joe’s is a bunch of volunteer fire department guys who found out where I live and won’t leave me alone. I’m at the firehouse today, and we’re going to go old school. We’ve never done it in the blog, dead lifting and bench-pressing the right way.
