And also making sure my wrists are in like with my forearms, since I've experience pain in them often after a few sets of benching.

Hopefully I can get to 185 x 5 sooner rather than later, but ultimately mastering proper form is more important than an arbitrary number.

About time! I feel like I've preached about some of those mistakes until I was blue in the face (..not necessarily to you though).
