I’ve always benched on my bench at home, which I assumed was standard, then comes my first meet and it is a full inch or two shorter.
Since then I’ve been training at a gym which has your standard benches, so they are the right height. But, every now and then I bench at home. At home I can do 365, at the gym and meet I can do around 15-20 lbs less.
I can’t wrap my head around what the advantage of my taller bench is, which means I don’t know how to try and replicate the arch, drive, whatever on the shorter bench.
Any ideas on how to replicate the stance of a higher bench on a lower bench?
I’m 6,3 320 of that helps, 25% body fat as of Saturday, so my belly is large. I bench using an inzer 13mm lever belt, front of body belt is low, back of body belt is high to push that good ole far up and lessen the length of my bench.
It sort of feels like on a higher bench I get less arch, and the lift itself is shorter. So, I’ve been getting s better arch on the smaller bench, but it just feels so much harder.
