Reasons why the bench press is not recommended

No doubt about it, the bench press remains one of the most common weight lift gym exercises, either indoor or outdoor. Of course, before even being considered as a technique in the gym, there must have been proven underlying advantages. Not so much as to nullify the underlying disadvantages, the bench press has consequences. To some, the techniques involved are injurious and have to be amended, to others, it simply has to be ruled out. But before you take any of these actions, it is very important to understand the reason why the bench press can be considered bad.

Anyway, you don’t need to laugh at me; it was a long time ago, and there is always a first time for everything. I know better now.
