Accessory exercises are crucial for addressing weak points, enhancing muscle imbalances, and improving overall strength and performance in powerlifting. The best accessory exercises can vary from person to person, depending on individual weaknesses and goals.

The bench press from the chest, lying on a straight line or on an inclined bench, is one of the five basic exercises, that is, strength exercises that are most effective for the complex development of the entire muscles of the body. The main working muscles when doing the bench press are the pectoral muscles, the secondary ones are the muscles of the shoulder girdle, triceps and, in part, the top of the press.
