How are you doing, folks? This is Ronald Kenyatta here with, and today I want to go over stabilizing exercises for the bench press exercise. Now, just to give you a little information about myself, I am a Strength and Conditioning Coach in Professional Baseball. This is going to be my 12th year of doing that. I am a Performance Enhancement Specialist as well as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist. And like I said, today we're going to go, go over the stable, the muscles that stabilize during the bench press movement. Alright. So, let's just jump right into it. Now, you know, the, this is the, when, when it comes to working out especially for us, for us, for us males, bench press is what's it's all about. So, we know pecs, but today, we're going to focus on stabilizers which are going to be your anterior delt; your delt is divided into your anterior, middle and posterior. When you're doing a bench, you're focusing on the anterior delt. And you're going to also use your bicep short head; the, the short head is a bicep tendon that, the bicep that's kind of medial to the body, closer to the body. So, you're going to have a head, lateral and a lat, and a head medial. Now, with the short head, like I said, it's a medial closer to your body. So, those are the stabilizers that are used during the bench press movement, bench press exercise. So, let's demonstrate. Alright. So, throughout the movement, the stabilization is taking place. Right now, my anterior delt is firing, that enables me to move this properly up and down. My bicep or brachii is doing the same thing, stabilize the movement, allowing me to move up and down throughout the full range of motion. Without the stabilization, where you have issues like this, off-balance, going through different planes, going too low. So, you got to have those stabilization muscles to properly do the movement. Alright. So, there you have it folks, real simple. Once again, deltoid bench press movement that we went over right there and the muscles that are stabilizing during that movement, your anterior delt, like I said earlier; the delt is divided into three muscles, anterior, medial and posterior. We're focusing on the anterior and your, your bicep is stabilizing as well throughout the movement;. your short head of your bicep. So, there you have it, stabilization muscles for the bench press exercise. So, that's all I have for today folks, I hope you enjoyed that segment and I look forward to seeing you soon.
