Awesome start! You will get big and strong, I'm telling you listen to JB and you can't help it.

Close grip is way too close though! You always want your elbows under your hands.

Do this, lay down on bench. Tuck elbows in to your sides with your hands verticle above your elbows then and bring them straight up to the bar, that is your close grip grip.

As you go along, get your chest up more on bench to. Your kind of flat backed, get some leg action and arch a bit. It took me a while to figure it out, so don't worry if it doesn't come right away. Just keep watching others and working on different things so that you end up making your bench really a decline bench because of your arch.

It's a process. Just plug away.

Them DB skulls are killer ain't they?

Great start Mr. Awesome!

Hack away at anything which isn't essential. Do what you love, and do it often. Fazc.

Everything competes for recovery so more assistance is not always the best idea. miked96
