I was taught to tap the bar to your chest just enough to squash a bug, don't bounce it.

My arms are probably like upside down 7s, prob not too negative but I dunno.

But if what what Inline6 says is right, would a taller person with a thin build not bring the bar down all the way?

there may be a "proper" super way where your hands should be but these guys shouldnt be terribly worried about it in developement inner/outer/upper/lower/sideways etc parts of your chest. Watch "so you think you can bench" by elitefts. after you are done watching it, watch it again. Then you watch it again. finally you go to the gym and practice your technique. Then you grab a spotter and bench if you're scared of getting pinned, but if you schedule your training correctly you should almost never fail.

Look, if you want "inner chest", you need to build an actual chest first. The bigger your overall pec, the better your inner chest will look. Cable fly movements are great for contracting/isolating, but your overall pec mass will be built with the barbell and dumbbell presses.
Lmao.. you are a trip. You just repeated what I said. Sorry for posting the video bro!

I disagree! Bad form is what wrecks shoulders, and bad form is the hardest thing to correct. They SHOULD be worried about their shoulders whenever they bench.

P.S. I've seen the EliteFTS videos. I've been benching for a very long time, and I'm very efficient at it.

THIS ^. Agreed. no more worrying about inner outer lower upper chest crap. get your max up to 315 or 330 or 375 or something that starts with a 3 or 4. Then bench a lot. u want a big chest do some volume training. or strength training. or dynamic training.

a big chest comes from stimulating your pecs and a big appetite.

Agreed. We're aligned on this one wally! After reading this, I think I misunderstood your post in the other thread. I think we're saying the same thing.

So were you performing the shrug first, then performing a hang clean?

275 x2



It's a stretch I know. For the past 5-6 months I haven't been benching over 225, and just last week I tried 275 again.

305 lbs. is not far from that honestly. You may not increase 30 lbs. in a month (..or you might!), but even if you get close it's still an accomplishment.

I'm injured again, fml. It hurts to walk but doesn't hurt to run or go up stairs. Pain is around my glute/hip/hammy area on the left side. Same injury as last spring when I was doing all my crazy plyo stuff getting ready for volleyball. Back to f@gg0tron workouts!
