Thanks Ryano, perhaps it's just a consequence of the frequent benching. I'll pay more attention to how I feel after my deload week, if I feel fresh then it probably points to elbow fatigue in which case I'll re-evaluate things.

Cheers.

When trying to touch in my shirt I am losing the line as I near my chest. I feel like my forearms get so pumped from the tight shirt that I lose control. Any tips for that or do I just need more hammer curls and practice?

Fazc here is a video of some stretches that might help with the elbow. There use to be a better one, but it was taken down.

LtL, I'm not sure that "losing the line" is from forearm strength issues. If you are not staying "in the groove" as we say, it may be that you are losing overall tightness. You have to squeeze the bar and stay tight all over throught the lift. Or it could be that you are not keeping your elbows under the bar as you tuck. Difficult to tell without seeing it happen.

Just wondering if you put your katana on with the sleeves torqued? I just received my new katana the newest one that is IPF legal from Anderson powerlifting and put the sleeves on palms up, it felt a little different than my old regular first generation katana.

I don't initially torque the sleeves at all. I just put it on straight until it's broken in. After I will torque the sleeves to get added support from it.

Thanks, I think I will put it on straight next time.

Flare at the top as you press.
