What can you bench bro?

Now this is a question I bet 90% of guys can answer

 

Everyone knows what they bench

 

It seems to be the standard that guys judge their strength on

 

And everyone knows that Mondays are officially chest day so everyone gets their bench on

 

They can’t wait to tell you as well

 

Like a vegan crossfitter, they literally are bursting at the seams to tell you about what they can lift, how many reps, whether they are doing negative reps, drop sets, reverse band, clusters or whatever they are doing

 

But in the cricket world we maybe need to be a bit smarter

 

Lets try and get some new things that bowlers say first instead of how much they lift

 

Like how many wickets they’ve got

 

What’s their strike rate and average

 

How batsmen are telling you that you’ve increased your pace

 

Surely that’s what we want to be hearing

Afternoon chaps.

 

Just wanted to say, I had my first outdoor bowl on Thursday.

 

I was bowling with a horrible old ball on a wet deck and felt yards quicker than last year with a new ball!

 

A couple of my team mates also said I had put on pace.

 

Thanks for your help with everything during the off season. Looking forward to what will hopefully be a great season

 

Cheers

 

Sean

Yes big lad, that’s what we want to hear

 

Do you think we asked him how much he was benching

 

Or even care?

 

Nope

 

Of course we’re not saying it can help, but it’s not the only thing

 

Getting the kinetic sequence right, fixing dysfunctions and getting stable and mobile are absolutely key

 

Having your inner core firing when its needed for extra support is everything for a fast bowler

 

Then you can add the strength on top

 

Make sure you are telling people how quick you’re bowling this year, not your bench big lad

 

Think differently
