Off Season Bench Press Training for a World-Class Bench Press Machine

January 31, 2017 11:37 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

Over the last few months, James Strickland, better known to some on the Instagram circuit as Swimhack, has cracked 600 raw in the bench press and set a string of other personal and USPA American Records in the bench press, which include a 633 bench press at a 290 body weight along with a 612 bench press at a 273 body weight.


Obviously, when we were in the peaking phase, James is focusing on heavy triples, doubles and singles in the bench press. So many lifters think strong guys just train that way all the time. Smart ones don’t. The off season gives a great opportunity to get a break from ultra heavy weight, build muscle hypertrophy, correct weaknesses and provide a psychological benefit from a fun and different stimulus.


Instead of reading the workout I prescribed for James, check out a real, full off season bench press workout video. Make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for plenty more of these updates.
