You're a strong mofo. What's the advantage to doing floor presses as opposed to regular bench?
My training routine does very little in the way of going to the gym every week and seeing how much you can bench. The coaches have me doing many types of pressing movements that in sum, and together, build up your bench press overall. This keeps the body guessing and also different lifts expose different weaknesses in the pressing movement and help you to fix them.
The floor press I love because it absolutely punishes my triceps for one. Also, it brings me into an 'awkward' rom and really forces you to grunt out the weight. My coaches beleive the 8% rule... you can bench about 8% more than you can floor press.
Some other lifts I do:
Board press: Just great for building strength, you lower the amount of boards used... all power lifters are familar with these.
Band press (reverse bands), these make the lift easier but it isn't as easy as one might think... the bands become less and less helpful the more weight you have on the bar. However, the bands do allow you to lift a lot heavier weight, which is a great confidence booster. This way you aren't shaking in your lil boots when you get to that big boy lift.
Basically we alternate my max effort days between floor press and a reverse band or board press. Keeps my body guessing and so far has been steadily leading to strength gains.
On Thursday's I do speed work. Basically using little weight and generating as much force and acceleration as possible....
Chucky, yes I meant to post here. I like some of you douchebags figured i'd swing in and get some conversation started.
