There was a lot of chatter on Instagram today after I put up a video of my bench setup for one of my clients. I was going to post a video and send directly to her, but a lot of the questions that were asked warranted a public Blog/Video.
I do want to note that an arched benchpress is legal, not unhealthy, and a good option for my level of flexibility, limb lengths, and strengths and weaknesses. The ability to arch depends most on hip flexibility rather than just back-bending onto the bench. Watch the video, give it a try, and let me know your thoughts!
