I never lock out on Bench Press (to keep constant tension on the chest and not damage the joints), however I've seen some really big guys lockout. Do you guys lockout?
What about in other exercises? I don't lock out in any exercise except for deadlift.

It won't count in competition if I don't lockout so yes, I always do.Training log:

If you're training to compete in the bench press, lock it out. If not, who cares?New life in place of old life
Unscarred by trials
A new level of CONFIDENCE and POWER

All the black is really white; if you believe it.
And the longing that you feel; you know none of this is real,
You will find a better a place, in this twilight.
