Yesterday while I was teaching my friend to bench I decided to play towards finding out what I could bench. I was still a bit sore from the workout they day before ( 1st day on that tends to be hell as saturdays are for me ).

Even at BW, bench hurt quite a bit. I really wanted to go for 200+, but keeping my shoulder healthy is far more important as it will allow me to work ( lots of spotting ) and be active in sports.

Overhead stuff didn't hurt at all ( push press or Oly squat ).

Time to go back to DB bench which I always enjoyed more anyways. Far more useful than BB anyways.

Bench press is one of those things like leg press that I look at as a fun ego lift. Both have their function ( some ) but there are mo' bettah alternatives.
