Your diet should include plenty of protein. If you follow a plant-based diet, be sure you’re eating complimentary plant protein sources (e.g. beans and rice) to get a complete amino acid profile.
When you’re learning a new skill (or a new exercise) rest breaks could be just as critical as practicing. Try taking a break early and often – it may help solidify retention and development.
While we know that consuming high quality foods and regular exercise are key components of a healthy lifestyle, don’t underestimate the value of chilling out.

Bench Pressing isn’t appropriate for every population, especially those with shoulder injuries.

As an added bonus, I also get a great core challenge because I must resist rotation during the eccentric phase of the movement. @excellenceinexercise . . #benchpress #wednesdayworkout #vitalifit #mensfitness #menshealth #womensfitness #exercisetip #fitnessmotivation #fitnesstips #educate #engage #empower #challenge
