Sticky Thread Sticky: The Bench Form Thread

We see a lot of threads asking for bench form critiques on this forum. I feel like most of these threads are made because people don’t know how to critique their own form. They just don’t know what to look for. I’m hoping to narrow that gap with this thread. I’m not going to touch on everything,...

How wide is your squat stance and what is your foot angle?

This is something that I still don't quite have a natural feel for.

Resistance bands on hack squat/leg press

Seen people use bands on these on the machines I'm assuming it's to provide more tension through the whole rep rather than part of the rep Just want people opinions on how beneficial this is and if it's worth doing myself.
