Great article on the bench press. I had 2 questions however:

You suggest an equal or greater amount of pulling exercises be used to balance the bench press, do the classic lifts count here, or are you recommending specifically rows and/or pullups?

Also, with regards to curls being used for performance, would this be a lower rep, more weight scheme, or just a general usage for them?

Brian - I mean specifically upper body vertical and horizontal pulling exercises, e.g. pull-ups, row variants, etc. Curls can go either way - I don't see a big need for super low rep heavy curls, but 4-6 reps or so with a bit of a cheat has its place for strength, and that 8-12 range can help for a bit of joint conditioning and elbow balance.
