Amazing New Report…
Reveals the Best 18 Bench Press Routines of All-Time

Dear Future Bench Press Master =)

My name is Mike Westerdal and as the founder of the world’s largest web site dedicated to strength training I can tell you two things I know about the bench press that are totally true:

1.  98% of the people performing the most popular exercise in the gym (the bench press) have got it all wrong and are destined for a progress-halting plateau or even long term shoulder pain. 

I am dead serious here.  Having trained at hundreds of commercial gyms around the world I almost never see anyone that is using correct technique or form when performing the king of all upper body exercises.

Unless you’ve had the opportunity to train at sports performance centers or underground barbell clubs like I have, there just aren’t that many people that “get it” and are willing to help you out so that you don’t miss out on hard earned strength and muscle that you’re training so hard for.

2.  If you are one of the very few that has actually mastered the technique (which doesn’t have to be hard) you still have to be able to design bench press specialization programs with a concentration in powerbuilding that combines both strength and hypertrophy training.

Basically when you want to train for strength and size it can be a gamble, “hoping” you’re doing the right assistance exercises, training often enough, and performing the right number of sets and reps.  Not to mention you have to pay close attention to your tempo and rest periods.

As you can see, there’s a lot of variables involved in getting it right.  You can see that even if you have your form down you’ve still got to get your hands on a workout that builds muscle in your entire body, helps you cultivate a powerful bench press and simultaneously develop slabs of rock solid muscle on your upper body.  And that is exactly what I’ve done for you, and..

That’s Why I Created “Bench Press Explosion!
Sharing 18 Of The Best Bench Press Routines Of All Time

What you’re about to find is a collection of my personal favorites of the very best bench pressing routines for exploding your chest.  The bench press done in a supine position on a flat bench, is considered by many powerbuilders to be the monarch of all upper body exercises, much like the barbell back squat is to the thighs and glutes.

Because the bench press has long been counted among the most important muscle and strength-building compound exercises, it is only natural that all powerbuilders want to develop a respectable bench press weight.  However, building shapely armor-plated muscles in the chest is just as important as the weight you bench.

The problem as I see it is addressing how powerbuilders can simultaneously achieve big numbers in their bench press weight and still develop sculptured, striated pecs in a minimal amount of time. That is the challenge I strive to address with this book.

It this eBook not only do I show you how to perfect your form in an easy to understand step-by-step manner but you also get access to the very best 18 bench press specialization programs of all time.  It has taken over five years to create this masterpiece but I didn’t do it alone.  I’ve had the honor of picking the brains of some of the most powerful men in existence and now I’m sharing their secrets with you in the NEW…..

Workout of the Month

If you’re anything like me, following the same program for 4, 5 or 6-months straight is at best, tedious and boring.  In fact, for me 30-days is the sweet spot or perfect length for a routine before I’m ready to move on to something different.

P.S.  If you’re not a good bencher right now that’s even more of a reason why you should pick up a copy today.  It’s natural to focus on what we’re good at and avoid what we struggle with, but the bench press doesn’t have to be something that frustrates you.  Let me help you improve your form and give you some proven bench routines so that you don’t have to make excuses about the bench press ever again.


Got A Question?  Check Out Some Frequently Asked Questions:

Q:  Do I need any special powerlifting equipment?

A:  Nope, these programs do not use any fancy training aides.  All you need is access to a bench, a bar and lots of plates 🙂  These routines all for raw lifting and do not require shirts or suits.

Q: Do I need a gym membership to do this program?

A:  You can do the Bench Explosion Workouts at home with minimal equipment or at any commercial gym.

Q:  What if the routine doesn’t work for me?

A:  There are 18 wold class routines so if you don’t like one try the next one.  If for any reason you’re not happy you’ll get a full refund, no questions asked.  I stand behind this product 110% and have no problem offering a money back guarantee.

Q:  I want to start training these Bench Explosion workouts right now.  Do I have to wait for the booklet to come in the mail?

A:  You don’t have to wait, you can have access in just a few moments.  Bench Press Explosion is a digital product so don’t worry about shipping fees or delaying results.

Q:  This sounds like exactly what I need, but I want to take a peak inside.  Can you show me a preview?

A:  Sure, not a problem. Here’s a screen shot of the table of contents.  See you on the next page.

Q:  Mike, what makes you qualified to select the bench press routines out there?

A: I’m a personal trainer, strength coach, founder of the world’s largest bench press site, I have written the best selling Critical Bench Program, been published on Amazon and magazines around the world and I’ve spoken with, trained with and interviewed hundreds of the world’s strongest men.

Plus I”m no slouch myself having bench pressed 630 lbs in competition with gear and hit gym lifts of 452 lbs and repped out with 405 for 5 and 315 for 15.  I’m not a gifted genetic freak either.  I have scratched and clawed for every pound.  When I was 15 years old I couldn’t even bench press 100 lbs so no matter where you’re starting from I can help you.

Q:  You keep referring to powerbuilders.  What is a powerbuilder?

A:  A powerbuilder is someone who trains to get strong but also wants to look ripped and jacked.  In essence it’s a hybrid lifter that is strong like a powerlifter but looks good like a bodybuilder.  Note that a powerbuilder does NOT have to compete to enjoy the training style.  The Critical Bench Vault is where powerbuilders hang out to improve themselves.
