“Want to work on chest today? How much can you bench? How many plates?” I’ve heard those lines one too many times.

But how sexy is it when you have a big chest, but can’t reach your hands over your head or behind your back? Yes, very sexy. But what are some of the consequences of focusing your workout strictly on the bench press, especially when lacking full shoulder range of motion?
