Have you considered doing dead position bench press in the power rack. You would position the safety pins about half way up with relations to your ROM and start the press from there. I did these for 2 weeks and my lockout problem went away. I am sure I am going to need them again later as I increase in weight.
May I ask what type of training program you utilize that enables you to work through Bench and Squats on the same day? I can barely finish my Squat or Bench routine on their separate day and that’s using a modified version of para-workout nutrition. I find it very impressive that you are able to accomplish this.
I just got done with a sheiko program and that had me benching m/w/f and squatting m/f and dl on Wed, ive just gotten so used to the format that i decided to make m/f squat bench day, its been working for me and I like it. I do squats and lunges for legs and bench and weighted dips for chest. I also vary the intensitys too, if i do 85% plus on one then i may go 60-70% on the other. [/quote]
That makes sense! I do the 5/3/1 method and due to the rep and percentage range I have to skip a day in between sessions. And as they say constantly, “Do what works for you”!
