Comments welcome.

I'm thinking 3-boards, floor presses, and various other tricep max-out movements.

I'd widen your grip some to reduce the range of motion.

I am long-limbed, that's for sure. Just worried about my shoulders in the long run.

Thanks,

Yeah, looked nice & easy until 5-6 inches off your chest so any moves to strengthen at your sticking point will be good. As others have pointed out, grip looks too narrow. Where are you hands in relation to the rings?

widen grip and get some leg drive. Might have to either pull back your legs or spread them out. Also don't neglect doing lat work as that will help keep you strong off the chest

Like Matt said widen that grip up... Also you are correct you need some lockout work... make sure you do some heavy tricep work to get it up. Great work on the PR!

Can anyone briefly explain how to get leg drive? I'll widen my stance and bring my feet back more, but is it as simple as pushing through the ground as you bench?

Thanks for the suggestions.

With everything you got. If your ass comes up then you either need to spread your feet or pull them back more. If you had access to board presses I think you would be amazed at how much they help

Heavy Close-Grip Bench Press work will help your tri's in the movement. Paused reps off your chest doing BB Bench, DB Bench and any shoulder movement will help you to really push the weight off your chest as well.

BTW, I have my first three-board press adventure tomorrow which should be a fun experience...... good luck man.

I've been doing all that and it definitely helps--however, as soon as I paid most of my attention to my tris with 2- and 3-boards, close-grips, etc.., my chest strength would lag behind, thus my sticky point moved up or down accordingly.

Thanks again,
Dave
