    Question Older vid, but posting for form critique.

    Well I don't really post bench videos often, so here is one. I wasn't going to post it here until someone else told me good form and then I though I would ask some of you guys about it.

    My ass does stay on the bench. It doesn't look like it, but I have a FAT ass, so it is on there.




    Anything I should work on to increase my bench? Am I touching too high/low?

    the only thing with that is he might not be able to keep his feet flat. it looks really odd to me to bench like that too but hes a USAPL lifter so he has to keep his feet flat. definitely could get them a little further under him though and just point his feet outward

    I'm wondering why your using wrist wraps for a lightweight? We have almost exactly the same bench, if your sig is still accurate(I'm at 270), and "heavy" to me doesn't come until 250+. It seems to me that using wrist wraps for all or most of your sets would be equivelant to wearing a belt for most of your workout, as in it's weakening your wrists. That's not too big a deal I guess, but every bit counts when you put a shirt on and try to control 100+ more.

    The grip that I use now is quite a bit bigger than it used to be. I worked up to 215 without them for 3x6 the other day.

    I can do up to 90% or so with a super wide grip, normal grip for me is about 2 or 3" out from shoulder width, and it's never irritated my wrists, but that could just be me. Is that the issue at hand? Your wrists just don't move that way? If so, why bother benching that wide? If it's not reasonably comfortable, or if it hurts even with lighter weights, it might not be a good idea. My intention is not to be a jerk, this is a genuine inquiry.

    and why are you trying to get ripped if your a pl?
    Some just compete that way. Glad you know the majority of powerlifters in the world, how they train, and how they compete, all while never attending a single meet. Don't give advice that is not related to grippers or oddlifts no one cares about please.
