Fletch: Good idea. I feel a bit of strain on the tendons, so it might be a good idea. I will work on tucking them a little more, the dropped of numbers is fine as long as they rise higher in the future.
Chris: Good remark. I watched some videos on leg drive, it helped, but apparently not enough. I’ll make a bigger effort on tightness. Unracking is the thing that seems to make me lose tension. As for the foam roller, I do the exact thing you described. It helps a lot, and my back cracks and pops like crazy, but it feels so much better. I usually do it before bench/ohp, do you think it should be done in another time? Thank you for the video, very useful.
I have one more question. I was wondering if it’s a bad idea to add in BTN Push Press (Snatch grip) as assistance afterwards? I love that movement, it feels great and seems to have carry-over to my other pressing movement. The only thing is that my shoulders obviously get tight from the benching, so it should ruin mobility in the overhead position, maybe I could simply warm up with light strict BTN press and then on to PP?
