thanks for that. turns out i can't arch for crap with that constraint lol.
um... i read something somewhere... that suggested that powerlifting benches were a bit higher than most commercial benches. is that true? if so then that would make me feel a little better about my arch sucking so bad. it is hard to get my legs back, basically, unless my ass is higher in the air than the bench - but if the bench was a bit higher then that would help.
if that is the case... is there a non-stupid way to make the commercial bench higher (i think it is bolted to the floor)?
