barbell bench press is a pretty useless exercise considering the damage it can do. It's basically just a dudebro scoring meter.

I thought this was wrong, or at least not what professional body builders say as I remember seeing that video someone posted not so long ago about how the decline bench was the best bench exercise.

watch this, he talks about decline bench

How much would u say a 5'9 guy should way about cuz I was reading another thread and someone was saying if your 5'9 and 180 your fat or something? I'm 5'? And around 165 I'm not fat but I'm not like 9% bf either so that doesn't really make much sense to me

Disagree with this one. This is the king of pushing movements. What else would you substitute it with?

dumbbell bench press for one.

bbell bench press can cause strain to your shoulders if done imroperly and with extreme weights. people with shoulder flexibility issues should not do bbell bench.. just like ppl with hip flex. issues should not do heavy bbeell squats

I don't understand how its considered a "pretty useless" exercise in a workout routine. I've had major gains off of this exercise as many others have had as well I'm sure of.

When considering the damage it can do, it is not worth doing over alternatives like Dumbbell press. Sure you can get gains, but you can also fuck up your shoulders. And when that happens, you'll see no gains anywhere, as you'll be at home rehabbing your shoulder.

I see it written over and over again these days. It's time to move on from the old dudebro exercise.

ya... and of all exercises, deadlifts have the greatest chance of injury. we should stop doing them. and same with squats, they are hard on knees and backs and hips.

infact, the only safe exercise i can think of is wrist curles. but to be safe, we should all do them in the squat rack.

I began working out with one of the known major push exercises such as the BB Bench Press. I'm sure people can "fuck" their shoulders but does that really say to people that it is a bad exercise? Don't get me wrong. I know it is possible to hurt yourself and that goes for all exercises actually. But with proper training and knowledge I wouldn't neglect this workout in my routine at all.

Here is a good example how to bench, notice his hands are close in almost close grip bench so alot of the pressure is taken off of his shoulders and put primary on his chest and triceps, elbows are not flared out at all, this is pretty much how i bench most of the time and i have never had any shoulder injures at all, when u start going out really far with grip that is when shoulders come to play
