It wasn't so much getting stapled to the bench, as it was not being able to power past the sticking point (about 3-6 inches off the chest). The good thing is, I had a spotter who understands what I am trying to do, and who stood there with his hands in his pockets, and let me fight with it for a few seconds until I finally uttered the words, "Take it."

Good luck BV.
