Classic Physique, the future of bodybuilding? | IFBB New York Pro



While some with sadness and sorrow in their eyes watching old photos of Frank Zane, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Franco Columbua and other greats, comparing them to those on what is today’s bodybuilding fallen, others try to find a way to restore the lost beauty of the construction of the human body.

Indeed, if we left in chronological order by analyzing the winner of the Mr. Olympia, as the best of the best in the world, could easily come to the conclusion that what was considered a perfect human body, began to die out after 1992 and the massive victory of Dorian Yates.

This was recognized by the organizers of big events, which will this year at the largest gathering repertoire include the category Classic Physique, which aims precisely at such – the legendary appearance of the body.

Category that is already attracting a lot of attention, and that its beauty could largely take away the attention of the standard bodybuilding heavyweight.

In this light, we present an overview of participants at one of the first major competition PRO Men’s Classic Physique category, which will happen on stage in 2016 IFBB New York Pro.

At the competition, the nine names registered with PRO licenses, and they are: Axel Alvarez Jr., Omar Bautista, R. D. Caldwell Jr., Darren Charles, Devon Lindner, Arash Rahbar, Sharif Reid, Ani Saliasi, Russell Waheed. How to look, you can check the photo gallery below.

Bench Press tips to lift more | Fitness and Bodybuilding Expert

Bench Press tips to lift more | Fitness and Bodybuilding Expert

These 4 powerful little mental “tricks” could help you add an immediate 20% more to your bench press and break a new personal record!

Bench press power tip 1:

Focus on your body…not the bar!

When you’re benching, try to actually push your body away from the bar…not the bar away from your body.

This trick works for the same reason when doing pullups, you focus on pulling your elbows down.

Your brain sees the bar as an inanimate object outside of your control and it understands that the bar may “win”.

But your brain sees your body as an “ally” and “within your control”…

…and is much more confident in your strength when focusing on moving your body.

Bench press power tip 2

“Pull” The Bar Apart!

As you’re lifting the bar, try “pulling” it apart as if your hands were moving away from each other.

Your hands don’t actually move…you just want to grip hard and imagine “stretching” the bar longer.

This calls into play more “stabilizer muscles” to give you extra power in your upward movement.

Bench press power tip 3

Visualize The Bar Going up!

Do you know this “spotter” trick?

Whenever you’re spotting someone on the bench press and they’ve hit a sticking point, most of the time all you have to do is place 2 fingers under the bar and it magically seems to raise again.

No…you don’t have the world’s strongest fingers!

It’s simply a total mental “mind f’er” where the lifter “thinks” he’s getting help with the rep…but is actually doing it all on his own.

You can do this by yourself (or with a partner) just by visualizing the bar constantly moving upwards.

When you reach that sticking point, play a mental movie in your mind and vividly SEE the bar raising.

Your body will “believe” what you see and respond by making your “movie” a reality!

Bench press power tip 4

Look To Your Dominant Hand!

Another “sticking point” destroyer…

Once you reach the point where the bar stops its ascent and you think you’ve been defeated, look (without turning your head) toward your dominant hand (the one you write with).

This is yet another mental “trigger” for your brain to associate strength and power with what it perceives as your strongest assetts in your “bench press battle”.

Well, there you go!

Bring your brain to your next chest workout and load up a few extra plates because you’re guaranteed t leave your wimpy old record in the dust once you try these easy tips!

Tricks to increase strength in bench press | 20% power increase


Tricks to increase strength in bench press | 20% power increase

Let’s be honest, the bench press is the favorite exercise of most people. And nothing can be more frustrating than when you are standing at 95 months, 115, 145, 195 pounds … depending on who is much advanced. I will not give you a guarantee, but these four mental trick almost immediately increase your strength in the bench press by as much as 20%!

The first trick to increase strength in the bench press: focus on the body, not on the bar!

When doing thrust, then try to concentrate on that potisneš your body from bars, not the rod from the body. The trick is of similar character, like pull-ups, when you do not concentrate on the bar, but the lower the elbows. Your brain registers the rod like a lifeless external object which is beyond his control and assumed that he would be “bar” win. But your nervous system’s own body as the “allies” that he was under control, therefore gets a lot of confidence in the successful performance of motion. (And I’m not talking about how this technology makes a solid surface in the upper body with thrust, because shoulder blades, do not lift off the bench – editor.)

Another trick to increase strength in the bench press: Tear bar!

When doing push, try to stretch the bar, but without actually moving the arm. Only gripped object and wants to tear it. This trick increases the involvement of stabilizer muscles, moreover it is a good help in the back of thrust, better triggers triceps, which are primarily responsible for the final moves.

The third trick to increase strength in the bench press: visualize how the rod moving up!

Do you know the trick helpers, when at a dead stop placed at 1-1 finger underneath the bar, as it helps, of which the rod magically start? No, it is not necessary to have the strongest fingers in the world! It’s just a mental trick, in which the working bench press feels he gets help, but in fact he himself performs the entire work.

This can be achieved, and if you’ve continuously visualizing the bar lifted without stopping. If the thrust to slow down, then start to head one high-definiton movie in which all the more clearly you see that bar goes away, then it will happen in reality!

The fourth trick to increase strength in the bench press: look at the dominant hand!

If you get to a point where you think it will stop bar, and you see yourself vanquished, then look (without moving the head) on the dominant hand. It is one with which you write. It is also a mental “switch” with which you achieve that your brain thinks it has one very confidently weapon in the difficult task.

These were the tricks that one can apply at the next bench press. You’ll see, you’ll reach a new record.
