A bodybuilder uses a bench press to strengthen upper body muscles. The pectorals, deltoids and triceps are all involved when bench pressing. Lying on a bench on your back, you lower a weight to your chest and then push it back up, straightening your arms. This exercise develops the chest as well as surrounding muscles.
A spotter should always be with you, the weight lifter, since the weights are very heavy and until you return the weights to the uprights, you could be in a precarious situation. Weight lifters use something called a bench press workout chart which is a log showing their own personal fitness guide which they have chosen as a graph allowing them to see their progress in their fitness training. You will find that using this type of log will help you to map out your own program.
When using the pyramid bench pressing work out, be sure to have your spotter with you because you will be working with heavy weights. When you are developing your own plan, you can also use the guides and charts on the wall at the gym. These are good in helping you understand how many repetitions of lifts you should be doing when compared to your body weight. They usually have a poster or a guide to show you how you can create your own graph using a calculator to show you the reps you should do according to your own body weight for each weight you are lifting to gain the muscle in your chest area.
Since each person is different, you will be using a guide to map out your own fitness plan. You can also develop your own codes for understanding the log you are using in your own fitness program. When you use the bench press workout chart, over time, you will see how much you have improved in your body building skills from the time you did your first bench press until now when you can see that your efforts are panning out. When you look at the smaller weights you lifted compared to what you are lifting now, you will understand the importance of keeping your work out log.
