Form suggestion.....

...keep your shoulders back at all times. At 0:03, you drive your shoulders up and cause rounding. That's going to impair your bench, and it illustrates that you're benching "with your shoulders" rather than your chest. Good job on the 1RM though.

And yeah....your spotter sucks. Get a new one!
