Hang in there Badass! You are getting stronger. Pretty gutsy to go after it every time too after missing it already. That mentality will help you get bettter and better.

On those bench, you just lose a little tightness on the way down and make the lift harder than it should be. Try to stay wicked tight all the way through the movement. I mean TIGHT. SO tight nothing moves except your arms, so tight it hurts. Also grip the bar hard, like you're trying to bend it down toward your feet. That'll help you stay tight, but also keep your elbows tucked too. Think about pulling it down even though that's not what you are actually doing.

Rock on warrior.

Nice hair too.

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
