Tom DeLong, Director of Education, will post a new Dartfish video on the basics of the bench press movement. This video covers the basics of performing the bench from the fitness industry’s point of view for this exercise. Included in this video will be: set up (7 points of contact), bar path (descent and ascent), primary plane of motion utilized, internal versus external lines of force as well as which section of the pectoralis major is primarily targeted depending of the position of the bar when it reaches the sternum. This is part one of a series of bench press videos to compare and contrast fitness versus competition bench press movement patterns.
