Over the next few weeks we will be adding in the floor press to our weekly routine. The exercise is very similar to the bench, however, does not allow you to bring the bar all the way down to the chest, thus removing part of the range of motion. This is good, because most of us do not, in fact, fail at getting the bar off the chest, but rather fail near the lock out phase of the bench press.
Through the floor press we are trying to strengthen the weakest part of the lift. And on another level, the floor press should teach you how to engage both your lats and triceps more effectively while removing some of the pressure on the shoulders.
