I've had the opinion for ahwile that benching is one of the few moves that disproportionate work does lead to other issues. Not many other compound moves have this issie.
I have to agree!
I like Nick Tumminello's advice that the only people who should bench are powerlifters and guys preparing for the NFL Combine.
