Your point earlier about being closer to the bar for hand offs should improve the quality of your bench..your dead on. I have found that my form gets compromised the farther the lift out. Often I end up rotating the bar over with my shoulders, and losing arch and lat tightness.
Best meet lifts: 1040squat, 730 bench, 730 deadlift
Best total: 1040-680-730=2450
