Strong men have held the world aloft for millenia. Weak people don’t get stories written about them. Weak people won’t have their names on the lips of strangers as they pass. The strong survive this world. The strongest rule it.
For now, a 225-pound 1-rep-max bench press is adequate, but if you don’t soon progress to see the strength gains you demand, then getting under those familiar four plates might seem more embarrassing than awesome. If this sounds familiar, it’s time to make some adjustments to maximize your strength increases.
Try any or all of these adjustments to achieve increased strength and enjoy strongman status. Rule your life, or be ruled by it. Your choice.
