Having a big bench usually means you?re strong and in shape. In fact my football coaches in college were dead serious about knowing how much I could bench press and tested it several times a year. You see they knew something that most people don?t?..
Increasing your bench press will also increase the amount of muscle mass you have on your entire body! It?s true? and it?s because of 2 reasons. First, when you keep lifting more and more weight, your body must add muscle mass so that it can handle that additional stress (weight) you?re placing on it. And second, heavy intense lifts like the bench press releases anabolic hormones into your bloodstream? things like testosterone and human growth hormone. These are the male muscle builders that help you pack on muscle.
