"How A Skinny Kid With Asthma Achieved
a 452 Pound Bench Press & Packed On 75
Pounds Of Muscle Mass In The Process!"
And he guarantees you can get the same amazing results!

Here’s the true story of how I went from lifting a puny 100 pounds on the bench… to literally being able to bench press over 400 pounds!

If you learn the simple secrets I’m about to reveal… you can quickly add more weight to your bench press… pack on solid muscle mass… and get a muscular, physique that makes you feel proud and confident!

Increase Your Benchpress From:

Mike Westerdal, BS, CPT
Clearwater, FL

Dear fellow weight lifter,

I have a few questions I want to ask you. Please answer them honestly.

Would you like to quickly and easily increase your bench press… so you can show off to your friends and lifting buddies in the gym… benching more than any of them!

Would you like to drastically increase your power and strength… so you become bigger, better, faster, and stronger for your sport or hobby?

Would you like to pack on some lean muscle mass… so you’re proud and confident enough to take your shirt off and walk the beach?

Would you like to have a powerful, muscular physique that turns heads and gets you noticed… so you can walk with your head high in the air, full of confidence?

If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions… I have some important news for you.

In fact, I want to promise you something.

And I swear... that if you do this one thing... you’re going to see more muscle and strength gains from your workouts… than ANYTHING else you do.

I mean it. It's the God's honest truth.

So here’s my promise: If you focus on increasing the amount of weight you lift on the bench press, you WILL gain more muscle mass.

I promise you. In fact, if you increase your bench press by 20 or 30 pounds in the next month or so… you’ll pack on at least 10 pounds of muscle. Maybe more.

How can I say that? Because year after year, time after time, I've seen it happen so many times.

You’ll see right below how I was able to pack on 75 pounds of muscle mass between high school and college.

Look, here's the truth: You're only going to gain muscle mass if you get stronger. Because when you force your body to lift more weight... you HAVE to get stronger and add lean muscle mass to handle that additional weight.

In other words... when you have to lift more weight... your body reacts to the additional stress you're placing on it BY ADDING MORE MUSCLE TISSUE!

If you keep lifting the same amount of weight, over and over again, your body has NO REASON to get stronger OR gain muscle. It can already handle the weight you’re used to.

But when you keep lifting more and more weight... your body must adapt, get stronger, and add muscle to keep handling that additional weight.

That's how muscle gains are made: It's by continuously trying to get stronger. When that happens, your body adds more muscle mass to handle this additional stress that's placed upon it.

And you want to know what else?

The more muscle mass your body has... the more calories you will burn... and the more body fat you’ll lose... even when you're resting!

It's true... muscle mass is a very active tissue and it takes a lot of calories to maintain.

Look, if you’re skinny now… you don’t have to worry about that. You don’t have any fat to lose, so you’ll just end up packing on more size and muscle.

Back to the promise and why the best press is important: The bench press is the easiest lift to keep track of when it comes to recording your weights. It’s easy to keep progressing up on the bench press. Most gyms have those little 2 ½ pound plates you can keep adding.

Other exercises are tougher to keep increasing weight on… because you can’t keep going up in small increments. It’s either5 pounds, 10 pounds, or nothing.

And that’s a big jump and cannot be done every single week.

But 2 ½ plates could be a goal of yours every single week. It’s doable and manageable.

And guess what… each time you lift a little more weight… your body will react by adding strength and muscle to handle that additional weight.

If You’re Not Focusing On The Bench Press… You’re Missing Out On A Ton of Muscle and Strength That Could Be Yours!

Biggest reason to bench press more weight That’s the SINGLE BIGGEST reason you need to start focusing on lifting more weight on the bench: So you can gain more muscle mass!

Not only that… the bench press is a very intense and demanding exercise for your entire body.

When you do a heavy and intense bench press… you can shock your muscles into growing faster than they usually would. And because of the intensity of the bench, your body releases a ton of anabolic hormones into your bloodstream. Things like testosterone and human growth hormone.

So bottom line… if you focus on increasing your bench press... and the amount of weight you lift on the bench press, you WILL gain muscle and lose fat. And as a result… you’ll look bigger, more muscular, and also leaner.

Again, I've seen it time and time again.

Have You Ever Wondered Why People
Are So Obsessed With The Bench Press?

I used to ask myself, what’s the big deal with the bench press anyway?

It didn’t matter if it was at school with my friends… at work with my co-workers… or at the gym with my lifting buddies… everyone would always ask me, “How Much Do You Bench?

But over time, as I became more informed about exercise and muscle growth… I soon learned that the bench press did a lot more for your body than just about any other exercise.

3 Reasons Why You’ll Want to Focus on Increasing Your Bench Press

As you probably already know… having a big bench press is like a badge of honor. Plain and simple… it gets you respect and attention in almost every area of your life. It’s a measuring stick that you use with your buddies. The one with the biggest bench is usually the most respected. The strongest is usually the most respected (and most feared!)

Having a big bench usually means you’re strong and in shape. In fact my football coaches in college were dead serious about knowing how much I could bench press and tested it several times a year. You see they knew something that most people don’t…..

Increasing your bench press will also increase the amount of muscle mass you have on your entire body! It’s true… and it’s because of 2 reasons. First, when you keep lifting more and more weight, your body must add muscle mass so that it can handle that additional stress (weight) you’re placing on it. And second, heavy intense lifts like the bench press releases anabolic hormones into your bloodstream… things like testosterone and human growth hormone. These are the male muscle builders that help you pack on muscle.

The bench press is not just about boosting your ego, having a head turning upper body, or about the ability to push people around on the field.

When done correctly (which most people don’t) the bench press uses every single muscle in your body. You stimulate the chest, shoulders, triceps, biceps, your back and even your LEGS.

It’s a fact that compound exercises that involve the most muscle groups give you the most results in the least amount of time. It’s because you’re using ALL of your muscles at the same time.

And honestly… no upper body exercise involves more muscles and becomes more of a full body exercise then the bench press. So if you don’t have a lot of time you can spend in the gym… focusing on the bench press is a sure-fire way that you’re getting an intense, good workout in for your whole body!

Why Many People Fail To Focus On Improving Their Bench…

Maybe you know someone that struggles with the bench press. And the way they deal with it is by ignoring it. Or they say it’s an over-rated lift.

The problem with this mentality is that by skipping this mass building exercise… they’re depriving their body of anabolic hormones that could be helping then pack on muscle mass. And they’re not placing enough demands on their body so that they can gain muscle.

Foolish, if you ask me.

When you train the bench press the right way… you trigger a release of testosterone and growth hormone that helps all your muscles grow bigger and stronger.

And as a result... you’ll pack on more muscle mass… which will help you feel more confident in your appearance.

We all know that jacked, muscular guys usually get attention, turn heads, and get others to notice.

The #1 Mistake People Make When Failing To Bench Press More Weight

I want to let you in on a little secret:

Because there are SO many muscles involved in the bench press… you don’t want to neglect and forget them.

In order to up your bench press max and start packing on muscle mass… you’ll need to pay close attention to the other muscle groups that are involved in the lift.

For example, just bench pressing more often will NOT help you gain strength or muscle. In fact, the opposite occurs… you actually lose strength and muscle if you start to benching too often.

It’s because you’re OVERUSING the chest muscles… but UNDERUSING your other muscle groups.

Why Most Guys Can’t Bench Much Weight… And What To Do About It…

So remember… bench pressing more often or several times a week will make you weaker. And you definitely do not want that.

The secret is… start working the lats that stabilize the weight on the way down. Or the biceps that keeps the weight tight on your chest before pressing.

Barbell rows and forearm strength will even help you bench press more weight and these exercises will all help you build more muscle as well. The real secret to a attaining a powerful looking physique is to combine strength training with bodybuilding principles in the same training.

Doing this alone will help you increase your bench press, add more muscle mass, and get the kind of physique you’ve always wanted.

“Power Building” Develops The Rock-Hard Muscle That Gets Attention

Half Powerlifter Half Bodybuilder - PowerBuilder Powerlifters compete in the squat, bench press and deadlift.

And they get big and muscular because they’re strong. Again, like I mentioned earlier… if you start lifting more weight than you usually do… your body must adapt in order to handle that weight.

It does that by growing bigger and stronger.

If you don’t get ANYTHING else at all from this letter, just remember that… because that alone will give you more results than anything else you do!

Bodybuilders… on the other hand… generally train for muscle growth and for aesthetics or looks. Not all bodybuilders are as strong as they look. Sure, there’s nothing wrong with that.

But if you’re like me… you probably want to have strength… as well as the lean, muscular look.

And believe me, you can. Not only is it possible, strength and size go hand-in-hand!

If you try to get stronger… each and every week… you’re GOING to get more muscular. It’s just a fact.

So if you’re looking to gain muscle as well as strength… you need to start focusing on lifting more weight. I dare you to find a guy who bench presses 400 pounds that doesn’t have a powerhouse body to match.

Hi Mike, "Being so tall and having such long arms the bench press has always been an exercise that has lagged behind in development for me. Football programs I had used in the past just weren't cutting it for me. I highly recommend the Critical Bench Program because I increased my max from 380 to 420 during the off season. It wasn't easy but nothing worth having ever is."

Steve Konopka, Las Vegas Gladiators

"I'm a drug free lifter that competes in the WABDL. The Critical Bench Program helped me smash some mental and physical barriers. 450 seemed like an impossible goal considering that is what I was pressing for negatives before starting the program. I'm very pleased with the results and highly reccommend this routine."

Sid Scardina, Greenwell Springs, LA

"I purchased the critical bench workout to get to a 500 max.I followed the program to the tee my bench went from 465 to 500 plus in the short time of 11 weeks. I continued on my muscle mass grew and the strength continued to go up I broke the Alabama state record with a 540 press at weight of 210 in the WABDL world championship held in Reno, NV 2002. The program has worked so well for me that I presently have a 580 lb at the same body weight with more lean mass.The work has allowed me to compete in bodybuilding and powerlifting.I would to send you some photos and info to join the 500 club ; 600 is my goal or 3 times my bodyweight and still compete in both sports."

Harry Woods, bigiron600@yahoo.com

"After doing a bodybuilding show I was ready to regain my size and strength. I also needed to increase my bench fast. The Critical Bench Program was the answer. I was really impressed with the program. It felt like I was getting stronger every week. And not just my bench but my whole body. This program is a must for anyone looking to put on size and strength. Thanks Critical Bench"

U.S. Marine, Randy Jackson

"I had been stuck at the 300# plateau for almost a year, and was skeptical at first. But with this program based on Progressive Overload Training, I was astounded by the gains in strength that I made in just 10 weeks. The training tips were invaluable!"

Dr. Brad Bartos, M.D. - San Diego, CA


"How A Skinny Asthmatic Kid From Connecticut Achieved A 452 Pound Bench Press & Guarantees You Can Get Similar Results!"

So… is it really possible for a guy who couldn’t bench 100 pounds… to transform himself into a powerful, muscular lifter that recently benched over 452 pounds?

Well, I’ll let you be the judge. Take a look at my pictures above.

The one on the left is a picture of me in my senior year of high school. I think it’s pretty obvious that I didn’t really lift weights.

In fact… I had really bad asthma and was hospitalized a lot as a child.

So true story… I went from not even being able to lift 100 pounds… to literally being able to bench press OVER 400 pounds.

The picture on the right is after I started learning and using the bench press secrets I want to share with you.

In fact, between high school and college… I packed on over 75 pounds of muscle mass!

Sure… it took a little time. Because it took me a few years to learn and to know everything that I used… and everything that helped me.

But here’s the important thing:

If you learn the simple secrets I’m about to reveal… you can confidently add weight to your bench, pack on some solid, rock-hard muscle mass, and NEVER have to worry about being small or feeling weak again!

Take it from me personally, you can do this too!

When I started lifting weights and working on my bench press… it literally changed my life for the better.

I actually walked on a D-IAA college football team and became a starting outside linebacker my junior and senior year. You’ll never believe it… but I actually had the strongest bench press on the team my senior year… hitting 405.

I’m not saying this to brag. I just want you to open your mind to the possibilities. Because it doesn’t matter where you’re starting… it only matters where you want to go!

Like I just mentioned… as a freshman in high school… I couldn’t bench press 100 pounds.

Over time, I stuck with it. I learned things as I went along… and kept putting new tips and techniques into practice.

But the training style I used back then caused me to plateau at 300 lbs on the bench press. I stayed there for over a year. When I learned the advanced bench press secrets I’m going to show you (the same secrets that are in the Critical Bench Program)... my bench press soared to 365.

I Made More Progress In 11 Weeks
Then I Had Made In The Entire Previous Year!

When I started the program for a second time… I added another 50 lbs to my max… reaching 435.

I logged every workout I did in college that got me to a 400 plus pound bench press. And honestly, like magic… the more my bench increased… so did my muscle mass and strength.

And as my muscle mass and strength went up… so did my self-esteem and my confidence. I carried myself better… I felt better about myself. I was more outgoing. I felt more powerful.

It allowed me to get a job as a personal trainer. I wrote for the big-name Muscle Magazines. I even played some football in Europe after college.

I can honestly say that I owe so much of my life to the simple fact that I was able to dedicate a lot of time and effort to learning how to bench press RIGHT… and get bigger and stronger.

I’m not trying to paint this out to be magic. I just want to show you what’s possible when you set your mind to achieving something… and then you follow a step-by-step plan.

Who Needs This Program? Who Doesn’t?

Look, if you’re happy with what you’re benching right now, you definitely don’t need this program… unless you want to keep going up… if you want to keep getting bigger and better.

And you don’t need it if you’re currently happy with your size and muscularity. If you’re happy with the way your body looks and the amount of muscle you carry… then I’d skip this… unless you want to pack on even more muscle.

If you’re as strong as you want to be… or if you’re as quick and as powerful as you need to be for your school’s sport… you probably don’t need it.

But if you want to gain more strength, more muscle, and a much bigger bench press that makes your buddies envious and jealous, this will do it.

Why This Is Different Than Anything Else Out There

Look, this might sound like I’m bragging, but there isn’t another person online that knows more about the bench press than I do.

I mean, this stuff has been my life since I’ve been in high school. I’ve lived and breathed it for the last 10 years online. I even dedicated my business… and paying my house mortgage, to the bench press. My criticalbench.com site has grown into one of the largest and most popular sites online.

There’s no way all of this would have happened if I didn’t know my stuff. I’d like to think I’m one of the top experts in the world when it comes to the bench press. And most of what I know… it’s written down in this ebook.

It’s true… the Critical Bench Program is this same step-by-step plan that I learned and used over the last 10 years. It’s the same program that over 32,887 people have used to get stronger and bigger.

Today… I’ve bench pressed 630 pounds with a bench shirt and I’ve done 452 lbs in the gym. I’ve even got a video below of me doing 315 for 15 reps and 405 for an easy single.

Will everyone get the same results as me? I don’t know… you may get better results or you may get worse results… because we’re different people.

But one thing I know for sure… thousands of other people have tremendous success and I’m sure you’ll get amazing results as well.

And since this ebook is all about increasing your bench press by 50 pounds in 10 weeks… you’re going to get all the benefits that go with that. More muscle, more strength, more raw power, and more confidence. All the things I’ve experienced in my life when I started focusing more on the bench.

At Last… A Fail-Safe Way To Increase Your Bench Press

This ebook is basically my 10-year education… all wrapped into a simple step by step program that you can learn in one day. And you can start seeing results from this knowledge in a lot less time than you think.

If you start to follow this program today, I’d be willing to say that in 2 weeks… you’ll notice you’re stronger than you’ve been in a long time. You’ll feel your muscles are more hard… and you’re more muscular when you look in the mirror.

And the longer you continue to use it, the more the benefits will keep coming.

You’ll never feel small, weak, or puny again. You won’t get picked on or teased for being small. Like I did, you’ll start to become a leader for your team. You’ll be envied by friends, you’ll blow past your buddies when it comes to size and strength. You’ll turn more heads and get more attention from women. Bottom line, you’ll look better, feel better about yourself, and have a lot more confidence.

What Exactly Do You Get & What’s It Going To Cost?

I want you to picture how much time, effort, and energy this is going to save you in the gym. No more wasted effort. No more trial and error. No more long, ineffective workouts that don’t produce results.

You can skip the learning curve and learn my shortcut. It’s going to save you a ton of time and frustration.

Not to mention the money it’s going to save you. You won’t have to keep wasting your hard-earned cash on this expensive and unproven supplements. Things that like weight gainers, muscle builders, and other gimmicks will be a thing of the past.

No more shelling out cash and no more choking down nasty shakes. It’s all in the way you train and lift… not what supplements you take.

And not only that… I’m offering to show you this stuff at much less than you can get anywhere else.

If you spend an hour with a personal trainer at the gym… it would cost you up to $70 or more. It depends on where you live.

But honestly, there isn’t a trainer that I know of that teach you as much about benching as I can. I’ve lived and breathed this stuff for the last 10 years.

I’ve worked at many different commercial gyms and I’ve never met a personal trainer that knows the secrets of a competitive power lifter or bench presser. Why? Because the “real” experts are not allowed to train at commercial gyms due to the heavy weights they use!

I’m dead serious! I’ve been kicked out of commercial gyms before… and these are gyms I’m sure you’ve heard of… because I was lifting too much weight and causing other people around me to be uncomfortable.

Their exact words were: we’re not the kind of gym that wants to have powerlifters or hard core bodybuilders here making other people uncomfortable!

True story! Anyways…

You Can Start Using This Powerful Bench Press Program RIGHT NOW To Get Stronger Than You've Ever Been Before!

You don’t need access to any special equipment.

All you need is a bench, barbell some weights and some dumbbells. Whether you’re young or old, an athlete or weekend warrior, a novice or advanced lifter, you can use this program to set a new personal best training less than an hour a day four or five times a week.

The Critical Bench Program has sold thousands and thousands of copies since the year 2000.

So thankfully, thousands of people have used the system. And I’ve gotten thousands of emails with results and feedback from those who have used it.

"Shortly after 9-11-01 I began to take a closer look at my life and how I was living it. I was a 2 pack/day smoker and a somewhat heavy drinker. I decided to get into better health. I had attempted to get into shape on many times before but I always set un realistic goals, became frustrated and quit. A few months ago I discovered Criticalbench.com and the rest is history. The program helped in many ways. It kept me focused, I set reasonable goals and the results were tangible. Thanks guys! I started the program benching 205 lbs, and I put 45 lbs on my max in 10 weeks. Thanks again."

Jason Neyhart, Duluth, GA

"I just started really lifting about a year ago, and I’ve been trying to get my bench up to a respectable weight. Well when I saw your program on-line, I knew that was exactly what I wanted to do. So, about 10 weeks ago I started your critical bench program at a measly 250 lb max. Making 300 has been my biggest goal since I started lifting, and I figured if this even had a chance of working I needed to try it. Following all of the details of the program was difficult because I go to the United States Coast Guard Academy, and the regimented life style that comes with going to a military academy doesn’t allow for the sleep or nutrition. However, I did manage to not miss a lift over the ten weeks. Today I maxed out for week 11, and no shit, I put up 300lbs. My lifting partner Phil started with around a 200 max, and following the program as close as he could put up 260 today. I have to say that the program was successful and worth every dime."

Kirt Linegar

"I am 21 years old, 5'11" and weigh 201 lbs. I have been weight training for around 15 months I have just completed the 10 week program you sold me. My 1RM 10 weeks ago, was 230 lbs. Today, 10 weeks later, I maxed out at 280 lbs - a 50 pound increase (Just like you said.) Thank you for you expertise and help in approaching my goal of 300 lbs. It's great to see that the program works for the relative newcomers as well as the more experienced lifters."

Andrew Rouse - Sydney, Austrailla

"I am 54 years old and was about 182 at the time of starting your program. I was in pretty good shape and have been working out for years. I am a certified personal trainer and an investor in Southlake Nautilus Systems a 3-store chain of health clubs here in Northwest Indiana.

The immediate results of your program have been incredible. Although I have watched my diet for years my body fat never seem to get below 15% no matter what I did. In order to be succesful I decided to get real serious with your program and to follow it verbatim. I put new rigor in eating enough protein and found I was hugely focused on your ideas. In a few short weeks I have lost 3% bodyfat while only losing 2-3 lbs. My strength in every bodypart has gone up tremendously and everyone at the club has been asking me what I have been doing so others have noticed as well. Sure feels good to have members of the opposite sex compliment an old man. This program has been perfect for me and proved that as I suspected my previous workout program of full-body 3 times a week was overtraining. End result, I am looking at a wastline that is only a inch away from college days and I feel terrific. I am entering my first competition (yes, I know it is mid-cycle in your program) this Saturday and looking forward to seeing what I can do. It is not about winning but having fun and proving the value of your training methods. I thank you for your program."

Steve Moskowitz, Merrillville Indiana

"Critical Bench Brothers,
I am 43 years old and I weigh 212. I entered my first powerlifting competition on 1/18/03 "Deal with the Steel" a Jamie Harris production. I successfully won the 220 lbs. Masters and Open class with a masters world record, 600 lbs bench press on my 2nd lift. Just missed a 625 on my 3rd lift. I am getting stronger and learning so much more about the bench. I will be at the Masters National Championships in Daytona come this May. I'm very new to the sport but I've always had a strong bench press. I've only used a single ply shirt at this point. (Imagine...) I'm excited and and thankful for some of the tips I've gotten from critical bench. This is an awesome web site and "yes you can teach an old dawg new tricks". My quest for 700 is in my grasp!!!" "

Now… I used to sell these programs individually. If your current one rep max was 225 pounds… you’d get the training log that went with the 225 max program.

Many people have ordered this program several times JUST to get access to the different training charts.

But to celebrate the ten year anniversary of the Critical Bench Program… I’m giving away access to all 80 training logs.

This includes a starting max of 100 pounds all the way up to a starting bench press max of 500 pounds. Each training log used to cost 39.99. If you’ve been to the Web site before you know this is the truth. If you had ordered all of these programs individually in the past… it would cost almost $3200.

When the ten year anniversary of the program rolled around… I decided I wanted to do something special for everyone that has supported the site and the program over the years.

Since I first wrote the program… I’ve interviewed hundreds of world class powerlifters and bodybuilders. I’ve started competing in power lifting myself and joined a few underground barbell clubs.

So I have a ton of new information I want to share with you.

I want to offer the revised Critical Bench Program 2.0 for a special limited price of just $127 $77 $47 as a way of celebrating the ten year anniversary and thanking you for your support.

P.S. Look, as a weight lifter… you want to be able to bench more weight. And I’m going to show you exactly how to do it. It’s the same exact system I personally used to add over 50 pounds to my bench in just 10 weeks.

More important, I was able to gain some much needed muscle mass and strength when my bench press went up that much. It allowed me to have so much more confidence in myself.

When I got bigger and put on some muscle… I no longer felt like the weak, skinny guy. I felt so much more powerful and confident. I was more outgoing and also got a lot more looks from the ladies.

Not to mention, I loved when my buddies got jealous of me when I rocketed past their bench press weights… and also blew past them in size and muscularity. That was priceless!

I want you to feel the same way I felt when I discovered these secrets… this really did improve my life and help me feel better about myself.

So go ahead and try these same techniques… I promise you… you won’t be sorry you gave it a spin.

P.P.S. I really want to stress this to you. If you’re feeling frustrated trying to increase your bench press, and for whatever reason… what you're trying isn't working, then let me help you.

Or if you want to pack on some solid muscle mass and you just don’t know where to turn for real answers that work… this will help you more than you can imagine.

These are the same exact secrets I learned and used that helped me skyrocket my bench press and increase my muscle gains… so I was finally able to feel proud and confident about myself.
