The bench press is an essential training tool because it teaches us to push against things really hard.  It’s kinetic chain is almost a third the distance of a Shoulder Press, therefore allowing us to move significantly more loads, though it is not as useful to real life as the standing press.  Nevertheless, pushing against things really hard is a skill we should all invest in.

Our next upcoming event is the WOD Gear Team Series competition in Occidental College this Sunday.  Our team representing PCF is McCoy, Lara, CRose, and Zeb.  It will be held in a stadium on the turf, making us all feel like Gladiators in the freezing cold.  Wish us luck.
