For sure, my feet are too far out, I will try bringing them in. But, how do you tense them? Pushing which way? Tensing how? When I tried on my toes before and pushed down with my heels, my butt just came right up off the bench, but maybe I'm pushing or tensing the wrong way?
My arms are 45 degrees or so, not flared or too far in.
My back is definitely tight to start, and I recently lowered the pin height so I can keep it tight as I push off the pins, as that was a problem. I think when my legs relax, my back does too, so there's another flaw pointed out.
I think figuring out my feet position and concentrating on rowing the bar down will help! I'll take some time and experiment next week.
