Josh is well qualified to write this book, having long experience in gyms, training all sorts of clients, and specializing in elite bench press coaching, having coached several world record holders in bench press. Josh himself holds the record of the youngest to bench press over 600 lbs.
The information in this book is a distillation of Josh's experience and reading. As such it is a collection of coaching and training techniques unmatched elsewhere. For help on improving your clients' elite bench press, this is an invaluable book with hundreds of techniques, tips and suggestions, many matched with a scientific article reference.
That said, this book is not a guide to the art of coaching or training the elite bench press. This is a techniques and tricks list which should be utilized by experienced coaches and trainers who understand the progressions necessary for elite bench pressing. As such this book is truly outstanding.
Format is a brief description of the experiment and results followed by practical implications for training. Doesn't bore you with any unnecessary information.
I would give 5 stars if there were more pictures to show what certain terms mean, eg. Names of certain exercise variations, equipment, etc.
