Do You Have to Bench Press?

Jason Rice asked a very good question the other day on twitter, which was…

🗣 Can someone explain to me what makes the barbell bench press so unique that it MUST be included in a training program? Note: not why pressing strength is important and not why IR should be strengthened. Why you just bench press, and why it must be with a barbell. ➖ Jason Rice

You don’t have to. We don’t. They are better options IMO. Options that allow for scap free pressing. Options that allow for the scap to upwardly rotate. Options to put the shoulder in a better position with a Neutral Grip bar.
