We have some awesome writers and athletes who contribute to Garage Gym Life. But we admit that we don’t know everything. So we scour the web to find the best articles from yesterday and today (we’d get them from the future as well but our DeLorean is in the shop) and bring you the links here. Today’s article comes from Josh Thigpen, author of The Cube Method for Strongman.
The bench press may be America’s favorite lift today, but not too long ago, the Press was considered the true test of strength. Which makes sense; it’s pretty impressive to see somebody shove some ginormous object to the sky! Well thanks to modern strongman competitions, the press is making a comeback and Josh Thigpen argues that it might be the most important lift to master if you want to do well in strongman competitions! Follow the link to read the original article and find out why at Starting Strongman.com which by the way is a GREAT place to get training information and find less expensive equipment for the novice strongman competitor.
