I'll get a pic if there's damage of the building/car lol.

I'm excited to bench today. Depending how today's lift goes will determine how my last two bench sessions go.

Get strong!

Default Bench Form Check

Will update later with my log but here's a 240x5 form check. I'm happy with it, just no leg drive.

That was easy. You have a lot more in you.

Why the suicide grip? Also, in your set up, you notice you drive your hips up to get your shoulders set, then sit way down onto the bench which just pulls your body angle back down and pretty much takes your legs out of the lift too?

Try this. Get hands and shoulders sort of set, then pull feet way back underneath you and wide, as wide as you can stand and still get heels on the ground (you'll feel your glutes pinch, that's good), then drive hips up (they shouldn't come up much) and shoulders back and kind of wiggle feet back too (so hips are back on bench again if nec). So when you settle hips, or even better don't have to settle hips, you are good to go. CHest is much higher, feet are planted and legs pushing hard as you can.

That way your angle is as good as possible, your legs are in the mix pretty hard, and there's no way your butt can come off the bench if you choose to compete.

If you're comfortable benching, you're not using good form.

Mike, thank you for the tips. Today was my heaviest I am going on this program. I actually called it game over on the program. That was 240 and felt good, I went to 280x3 and that is going to be the best I do. I did recently learn how to get the arch (it doesn't look it but I'm pushing as hard as I can back) I do see what you mean about the legs. I'm not comfortable in this position, in fact my third rep on 280 my abs were sore and almost cramping in the end. I'm going to spend the next few weeks (maybe up to 12) to cut weight, work on form, stretch and really get good. I'll be doing dynamics and other things so I'm not going to just rep 135. I will get a 315 eventually.

I do thank you for those tips, I'm working on foam rolling and getting more spine flex. I was looking, if I can get the arch as full as I do with my butt off the ground I can touch on belly and get a 6 inch less range of motion!!!

So updating my log like I said I would Friday heh:

Bench - 140, 170, 205, 240x5, 280x3, 205x8, 135x8

BB Row - 110, 140, 165, 195, 225x5, 165x8

Floor Press - 135x8, 155x8, 175x8

Pull Downs - 140, 150, 160x8

Highest bench ever for triples. I was happy with this program I went from only ever pushing 255x1 max to doing 280 triples which is awesome.
