The kettlebell swing is a commonly used weapon in many strength coaching circles. The lift itself fortifies the body in a special way by calling on the trainee to perform some of the most dynamic movements the human body is capable of producing.

I’m always finding myself getting irritated when people talk about strength with an uninformed or improper perception on what all is involved with acquiring it. It seems to me that folks tend to not have a grasp on what strength development is, what all it can involve, and why they should be striving for in order to acquire it. Of course, I’m painting with a broad brush here, but I think you get where I’m coming from.
- Are you interested in building truly strong lats and back strength that is legit?
- Are you wanting to avoid falling victim to ILS-Imaginary Lat Syndrome?
- Are you optimizing your strength training in order to build a strong set of lats with the looks to match?
My experience with the imaginary lat syndrome. So the other day I was walking down the aisle of the grocery store and witnessed a guy all of about 150 lbs. of pure skinny coming towards me with his arms flared out by his sides. His arms were wide enough that I thought he was trying to make an attempt to cover the entire aisle and shoulder bump me as he walked by.
Look, I work with plenty 150 lb. guys in MMA and they are plenty strong and show it. I’m not trying to make fun of the guy in the grocery store aisle, but I do want to talk about some things here in today’s article that can be of some help to him and perhaps you as well if you’re serious about learning how to build some serious lat strength.
So the topic of today’s discussion is going to involve the good ole bench press. So what can I say about the bench press other than the fact that it is probably the most misused and abused exercise involving the upper body and free weights since the invention of strength training, period.
Often trainees that don’t understand the proper technique involved with the bench press practice with terrible habits and even worse form for long periods of time until one day something stupid happens to get their attention. The point I’m making is why wait for that day to come because I’m going investigate this exercise right here for your knowledge obtaining convenience. Read on my young Jedi!
