So I guess I've been benching like a bodybuilder for the last 25 years, not a power lifter.

This is the 2nd week of trying to change that. I've been arching the back, bringing the legs and butt back, using a wider grip and keeping the elbows in.

So far so good. My shoulders are not as sore after a workout and I'm really feeling it in the chest. I have been able to move the bar fairly well. It's still a little awkward, but once I figure out what works for me, I should be more comfortable with the lifts.
