My first competition will be this Spring if the shoulders hold out. Looking to compete in both.

I wish you well.
Hopefully my questions pertain to the thread. While having your attention gasper04 ill take the liberty of asking one more: Do you maintain the same form for raw and equipped benching(mainly bar path)? thanks buddy

I do try to keep the same ROM, makes the transition between the two easier.

But if you do a wide grip guillotine bench press with a reverse grip, your elbows are tucked in and it's a fun lift to do (in the safety of the power rack of course), and it's another option if all of the incline benches are occupied and you just don't want to wait anymore, but I hear what you're saying the conventional grip with flared elbows is hard on your shoulders.
