“Bench Press Hell” is one of my favorite workouts to give people who have never done it before. The shock of how heavy 95lbs can get is incredible. It always gives everyone a good laugh. Both the person doing it and the people watching it. It is also extremely effective. It’s literally the best 4 minute exercise I know.


3×10 Shoulder Dislocate


2x (30sec Work/30sec “Rest”) Push Press @ 2 x 5lbs Dumbbell

“Bench Press Hell”:

Use 95lbs on Bench Press

10-1 Ladder. Between each set you must hold barbell in fully extended position.

Note about the training: Day to day entries will change. Some entires will be workouts I have done that day, some entries will be workouts that people I train did that day. Some entries will be my favorite all time workouts or something I saw on the internet that I thought would be good for you to experience. Remember that because of the changing nature of the entries these workouts are not meant to be prescriptive. For example they aren’t necessarily written down with the intention of you following them precisely. Rather, they are meant to collectively build a resource that you can learn from. Hopefully you can implement some of these ideas and workouts into your own training in order to better your fitness.

Also note that I won’t be posting at the same time every day. If I workout early then it might get posted early. If I workout late then it might get posted late. If I am in  different time zone then hell, I don’t know what time it will show up. Just a head’s up. That said, I will do my best to get them to you in a timely fashion. You have my word on that but remember I don’t have an army of internet monkeys at my beck and call. I am doing this on my own…
