Tip: Bench Press from Pins

Build strength and power by starting your bench press from a dead-start position. Here's how.

Concentric training – starting a movement from the bottom – has many benefits, including strengthening your lockout. We can specifically target our sticking points and vary joint angles that may be less favorable based on our individual anthropometrics. Vary the height of the pins to work on different sticking points: bottom, middle, or near lockout.
