    Your right arm seems to go down faster than your left, but other than that i think it looks good.

    Your wrists look bent backwards, they are supposed to line up straight with your forearms. Grip the barbell lower in your palms.

    around 5 dips at max,although i do not know if i did them with perfect or even sub par form,but i did get down to somewhat perpendicular angle between arm and forearm before returning up each rep.

    And i am eating about 300 surplus from september 1st.

    thanks for feedback,it happens during final few everytime(even during my cut),maybe because i am close to failure?
    i thought since difference is less it won't matter,would it lead to muscle imbalance in long run?

    okay,got it.

    just to be sure,if i don't would it mean decrease activation of chest?

    or just that it will lead to wrist pain?

    Your set up doesn't look tight. The feet sliding on the last rep is wasted leg drive.

    thanks again for replying.

    i am trying to follow this.
    i have watched a lot of form videos,and i guess they are very much confusing me,although most seems to say some same things like
    1. No false grip(more prone to injury)
    2. have a arched back,but not excessively arched
    3. make sure shoulders arms aren't perpendicular,as that puts excessive pressure on shoulder joint.

    other than that,movement pattern seem to vary a little,between many youtube fitness channels like scott herman,jeremy either,jeff,etc.

    i can't actually shoot from "above" angle,i train alone,side and front is best i can do.

    yeah that was,i was close to failure and almost got wrecked.

    but does that mean somehow that set or rep was ineffective?

    also what should i change in setup?get a bit more underneath it or away from it?

    PS- completely side note,i am following fierce 5 for some 7 months now,with some 1-2 month break,and seems like my body doesn't get sore,AT ALL from workout despite increasing weight/rep/set on progressing,is it normal or indication of ineffective workout?

    You lifted the weight but with more stability in your set up, you could have possibly lifted more weight or reps.

    Dat poverty weight set doooeeeeeee. Also why are you going on a cut? You don't have muscle or fat. You can afford to go on a 9 month semi bulk over winter (imma assume you're in india) and then maybe you should cut for summer, but don't be cutting when you haven't got a muscular base to cut to.


    As far as the bench goes, get those legs back for stability, tighten the **** out of those shoulder blades, and overrall tighten way up. You're looking like the majority of gym goers with this form, when you want to be better than them. Arm angle isn't horrific though.

    Haha,i do what i can,local gym,plan to shift to professional one,once i have my form in command.
    This gym has about 60-70 kgs in weight only,so i have to shift sooner or later.

    Also why are you going on a cut? You don't have muscle or fat.
    i was on a cut till september,i was overweight,lost about 30-32 kgs on the cut,now i am bulking from this month starting.

    You can afford to go on a 9 month semi bulk over winter (imma assume you're in india) and then maybe you should cut for summer, but don't be cutting when you haven't got a muscular base to cut to.
    Lean bulk is what i am aiming for as well,about 300 surplus,hopefully,i guess i will know by the end of this month or another.

    and yes i am from india,nice guess there.

    Back,as in?
    i have slight arch and retracted blades,those are something that remain that way till end of set before they get ****ed up for some reason.

    Sorry I was drinking so I wasn't the most articulate. What I meant is that if you're going to take advice on benching you want to take it from somebody who's good at it or at least has more experience than you do. I get my coaching in the gym from somebody who benches more than me not less than me.

    Op the biggest thing I see in everybody from novice to intermediate is that they can't keep tension in their body throughout the entire lift. The tire you can keep your body the more stable you are the more weight you can push.

    The day after a good benching session my traps and abs and hands are all sore
