More Bench press?

Should we be doing more BP than what comes up in the WOD. Looking for opinions.

Re: More Bench press?

You can do whatever you want in respect to your workouts and goals. I havent BP in awhile, but i plan to start incorporating BP because i want to increase my CFT. This aside, once i get my rings i am going to go crazy with them .

Between pressing, HSPU, and ring work, my BP goes up every time. If you want an even greater increase, toss in a little ME BP every other week.

Re: More Bench press?

Heavy overhead pressing is probably more useful.

But you can do ME BP on the side.. same with any other max effort black box routine.
