However, it was different in the December 2009 meet. I was still recovering from a lower back strain around two months earlier, as a result of doing deadlifts and atlas stones on back-to-back days. I was leaning back way too much, trying to load a stone. It's counter-intuitive because it only affected my bench press, not my squat or deadlift, in training and the meet.
i see. good luck with getting that up. i too have massive problems with bench press. my squat and DL are rising without any problems, but my bench continues to suck
