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.

Bent over barbell rows

I know that using too much momentum and rocking back and forth defeats the purpose of the lift, but is a little bit acceptable? I have a hard time not letting my torso get pulled down by the bar on the eccentric (but only by 1-2 inches), so I kind of have to rock back in place. None of it is...

Post Leg Press

Today I just hit a PR on the Leg Press of 560! But I’m confused... I’m 155lbs at 12%BF. Not complaining but why is my leg press so strong while my upper body movements such as my flat bench is only 135x8? I always do full range of motion on all my exercises. Is this just genetics?
