Overall looking very nice.

Thanks! Yeah I noticed that too, and leg drive for me has always been an issue. What do you mean by coil up? I get what you mean by pushing heels when I press.

Next Monday I will get a side on view and have a better look at wrists.

Good Bench rep, you've got on hell of a long bench stroke but that should get better as you fill out.
Hahaha it was one of my old tshirts from when I started lifting, I just never got new ones hahah.

Thanks! Maybe I should grip the bar wider? Even that width feels a bit wide, but I could learn to go wider.
