Critical Bench Components and Bonuses

The purpose of this post is to describe the various components and bonuses you get when you purchase the Critical Bench Program. If you want to learn more about Mike Westerdal and why his program works so well, you should check out the official site.


Critical Bench Main ManualOf course, there’s the main manual, The Critical Bench Program 2.0. This explains the theory behind the program, how to do the exercises, how many reps to shoot for, and even how to get motivated.

There are nearly 100 workout charts. The Customized Training Logs are essential if you want to make progress. The full routine is laid out in the logs with 5 pound increments. You’ll know exactly where you’re at and what to do to reach your 10-week goal.

One of the most helpful components is the Bench Press Fundamentals Online DVD. This ensures you’re doing everything correctly and comes with tips from pros like Clint Smith and AJ Roberts.


Critical Deload RoutineAfter you finish the main program, the Critical Deload Routine gives your joints and muscles a much-needed break. By the time you’re done with this routine, you’ll be ready for the next level.

Almost 150 pages of Mike Westerdal’s interviews with some of the most successful bodybuilders and powerlifters. It’s called Conversations with Elite Iron Warriors. This book is a goldmine. Even experienced lifters will find helpful tips in it.

If you’re unfamiliar with some of the exercises, the Critical Exercise Guide has you covered. Each exercise is explained step by step. And in case you’re injured or don’t have the equipment you need, it suggests alternate exercises.

Creatine is one of the few supplements you can take without feeling like a cheater. You still have to put the work in, but creatine gives you that extra oomph so you can work even harder. The Creatine Report teaches you all about creatine and how to use it properly.

Welcome to Critical Bench Program

Mike WesterdalWhy is it called the Critical Bench Program? Because increasing your bench press is critical if you want to boost your overall strength and fitness. Mike Westerdal (pictured on the left) is the perfect example of someone who focused on the bench press and saw improvements all over his body.

There are 2 main reasons why the bench press is critical:

  1. It’s easy to brag about. The average person has no idea how much weight a bodybuilder should be able to curl or raise, but most people know you’re in good shape if you can bench press your own weight. And everyone knows you’re a badass if you can bench press 300 pounds or more. Think of it this way: No one ever asks, “How much can you curl?” But lots of people ask, “How much can you bench?” Having a high bench press is like a badge of honor.
  2. It releases anabolic hormones. The bench press is so intense that it forces your muscles to grow back faster and it releases lots of testosterone and human growth hormone into your body. That means you will get leaner faster and see more improvement in other muscle groups, as well. If you do it right, the bench press will improve your triceps, shoulders, back, and legs in addition to your chest.

In the near future I’ll post sneak previews of the Critical Bench Program. I’m also going to post several video demonstrations and tips for beginners.
