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,...

Shaky Knees on Bench Press - How to correct?

I started learning about leg drive while doing bench press a few days ago. I've been trying repeatedly but I feel like my lower body keeps wanting to scoot up and off the bench and that my feet feel like they're just floating and not solid to the ground. Almost like I wish (I'm not going to of...

Deload calories

So I read the sticky here about deloads in overall and I've decided to have a week with the same 4 workouts but with 50% of my usual working weights. Is that okay if I ate 300-400 calories less than my maintenance during this week? Or that would be a bad idea because of the risk of losing LBM?
