Give it a try if you want, it might help. I think it should make your lock out a bit easier.
Thanks,always something to work on. Learn and grow!

Toes almost touching the inside plate,which is normal for my sumo (plus I was barefoot). I wouldn't want my shoulders too far forward for sure.
Wed Jan 23rd
Something different tonight.
Speed bench with 135lbs.
Speed was great I think,lockout was wobbly (more tightness). Fun too!
Seated dips. Each rep from a dead stop. A bazillion sets all at least 5 reps and none to absolute failure. Started with full stack (315lbs).
Somewhere along the line I worked in two arm dumbell rows. 90lbs 3x8.
Ab work and rotator cuff maintenance. I've tried a couple times not doing external rotator work,after 2 weeks without my bench hurts.
Video which ends with a good reason not to film in a car. I got road rage somewhere in the 5th minute.
Edit! For some reason the video will not work with audio past 2:40 mark. In a nutshell,I talked about seeing the same people in the gym for a year or even several years,making litttle or no progress. The message,set goals! And then I have someone cut me off and I get very upset.
