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 do you "feel" pecs on a bench?

I'm a pretty big gym noobie who maxes out at 40 for the bench. Tend to use dumbells more often because no spotter. But no matter how little or high my weight or reps, I can't feel the squeeze in my pecs (front of chest). I hold eccentric/concentric, keep elbows at 75 degrees, and pull shoulder...

Pull Up Grips

I'm trying to pin down a muscular imbalance I have. I can do neutral grip pull ups and reverse grip pull ups (chin ups) easily, 10+ for either of them. However, I max out at 5-6 overhand grip pull ups. Does anyone know what kind of muscular imbalance would cause that? Thanks.
