Bench Press (Negative sets) Tempo: 3:1:1 Means… 3 seconds lowering the bar down to your chest, once second hold, one second explosion back up to the starting position and repeat for remaining reps & sets. Give this negative based chest workout a try!

Shoulder Press - 4 sets x 8-10 reps
Weight - 60-70% of your One Rep Max
Perform the standard 4 sets, 8-10 reps with 60s rest in-between. Straight after the 4th set, drop the weight down by 5-10kg do as many reps as you can until failure. When you can’t do any more after that, drop the weight again by 5-10kg and repeat until failure!
