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,...

Abnormally long spine, and been told I physically cannot get proper squat form?

Has anyone ever been told this? It makes sense because ive always had a heck of a time with proper squat form. If anyone has, have you found a workaround for it? I've completely given up on squats but I really want to get back to doing them, but I am really worried I will mess up my back again.

Hammer Curl

Is it alright if the weights are touching during hammer curl reps. So basically, the same grip but elbows way in. Does it defeat the purpose of the hammer curl to do it this way? The form feels really good and smooth.

Help needed

Hi, So I'm doing fierce 5 and it calls for lat pulldown. I don't have access to this machine so naturally pullups are the next suggestion. However I also don't have access to a pullup bar (weak walls). So would adding in some slow moving rows be silly on addition to bent over pendlays? I'd...
