Many people think that the bench is all about the chest. It’s definitely the main target area of focus, but it’s not the only muscle group required to perform the movement with ease. Your arms are doing the work so naturally you’ll need to make your arms stronger if you want to push more weight. The triceps make up majority of the muscle in your arms and as such you should be building up the muscle strength and endurance in that area. Skull crushers and close grip bench press can work wonders for your triceps strength making pushing heavier weight a breeze.
