What's up with the benching with wood on your chest? Videos 4bd365, 5bd455 etc all have it. What's it called and what's its purpose?

Is that like sticking points as in your stuck on a weight and can't seem to lift heavier or is it to help technique?

its primarly used by shirted benchers to help improve top end power and to work on form.

for breaking thru sticking points (not weight but the weak spot in your bench) i prefer rack work.

What's up with the benching with wood on your chest? Sometimes that happens when you have a really cute spotter - or you get tea-bagged.
