that's some very solid benching.

have you tried a smaller belt yet? for me i can get a bigger arch and the belt is jes for holding the shirt in place.

no I didn't get to try a smaller belt. It wasn't near as bad today since we were using a good bench. I think the one at school it just too low and messes up everything. O and it was nice we didn't even have to chalk are backs today the pad on that bench was so sticky

the one in the pic above was some kinda kangaroo skin or sumpin. very sticky. i normally spray sticky on my back when benching just to make sure i dont slide.


wel if you get an extra 12 bucks go to home depot and by one of those 2" leather work belts. a lot of guys have switched over.

your benching is solid as a rock matt. good speed, good arch, nice set up, etc.....

sweet.

Well out of this shirt yes, but once I go down a size I will be getting much more. This shirt is very loose and is doing it's job of being a training shirt. I'm just hoping to make it up to 525 for 5singles in this shirt and if I do that i'll be pleased. Then i'll get a size smaller and start working up again then the weights will really fly.

I like that idea of using a metrosexual belt for benching. Anything that allows me to get a huge arch while wearing my shirt...

watched my vids a million times and i'm tucking my right elbow more than my left. This is causing me to have some lockouts slightly uneven. I was going to work on tucking my elbows more, but it looks like the left one is really the only one that needs help.

some times in tight poly one of the sleeves can be slightly twisted and cause this

make sure the seems are straight under the arms.
