Though I have never served in the military myself, I have always had the utmost respect for the fine men and women that bravely serve the United States of America. With an uncle and aunt that served in WWII in Europe and the Pacific in the Army and Marine Corps, a father and wife who both belonged to the Army National Guard, and older brothers that are veterans of the US Army and Navy, let’s just say I am somewhat familiar with our armed forces. And as someone that makes his living helping people reach their physique goals, I thought it was high time that I geared some advice toward our soldiers.

How to add 100 + pounds on your bench in 6 months!

100lbs + in 6 months, is very possible if you follow this program as it is written.  The amount you are benching now, determines how much you will increase your bench press on this program.  Someone benching 425 pounds at start is going to increase their bench more than someone starting at 225 pounds.  If you rarely bench with reps below 10, this program may take some time to get use to.  If you shift your thinking and training from size gains to strength gains you will notice thicker, harder muscles.  When benching, do not focus on growing; focus of strength gains.  The size will come.  Any one benching 405lbs for reps isn't walking around the gym with a bird chest!
