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.

Rack pulls

Are rack pulls a good substitute for deadlifts? I dont want to destroy my floors. I have those cheap puzzle mats but theyre not going to protect it from the weight im lifting. I was thinking if i put safeties on lowest setting it would be more of deadlift.

Question Is the overhead press the most techical exercise?

I'm just curious what do you think about this. Of course every exercise is very technical if you compete. But I think since it's the exercise that has the longest kinetick chain, from hands to feet, I think every centimeters count how you hold the bar, how much do you lean back, how vertical...

I feel my side delts are a bit more isolated and work a little harder if I do cable laterals behind the body. But I was told by a gym trainer today who was watching me doing them to not do them that way because they could put pressure on the rotator cuffs? Cable laterals in front of the body, I...

Do chin over bar chin ups help you be able to do chest to bar pull ups?

I can't pull up to touch my chest, but I can just barely get my chin above the bar when doing chin ups. If I keep doing chin over bar chin ups, will I eventually be able to get my chest to the bar? Also, do chin ups help you be able to do pull ups?

I maxed out my linear progression on the bench press pretty early on at 65kg. I switched to a progression called Nsuns which is similar to 531 & this got me up to 77.5kg.
