The next episode of our new series , where we answer questions you may have.

In this video, we follow up on Marcus from Episode 1:

We received some footage of Marcus performing the bench press, working up to 197.5kg. An impressive bench press for somebody, who we know, competes in the 93kg class. His training goal for his current cycle is to hit a 200kg bench press with his feet up.

Amir discovered that the problem he had was actually his bar path. He discusses why you shouldn’t bench press straight up. He lightly touches on the topic of moment arms and gives reason as to why pressing up AND BACK is more effective.

By incorporating Amir’s tips Marcus was able to bench 200kg, much easier than his 197.5kg grinder.
