#5 Avoid Injuries When Doing Pectoral Exercises
This tip should come to no surprise to us gym junkies. Unfortunately shoulder injuries are very common, I would personally recommend warming your router cuff up before performing bench.
Here’s a video with some good warms up:
Balance, proper technique, and posture should all help you avoid injury. Make sure you train the opposite muscle groups/ opposite movements to prevent muscle imbalances. An example would be to row as much as you bench press. Again going over technique don’t let your shoulder roll forward, don’t flare your elbows, and practice proper grip. Posture is so important for all lifts, but for bench you want to make sure you do not “wing” your shoulder blades. Overhead squats, scalp push ups, face pull will all help your posture.
