Well, it's not really new. And many of you have done it.

Just make sure that you're in the gym alone, otherwise it's easy to cheat and recruit someone to help you.

Load the bar a little heavier than you really should. Rep out with bench press. If you can manage to get the bar up, however ugly your form, go for one more rep. When you finally can't get it back up, lower it slowly to your usual touch point on your chest. Tighten your abs. Roll the bar slowly down your belly until it rests securely on your hips, then carefully sit up. Straddle the bench and roll the bar onto the bench.

I don't recommend more than one rep per workout.

:roll:
