I used so much leg drive in my last competition my legs cramped up. LMAO. I had trouble walking for three days. I bench with my feet firmly planted on the floor, squeeze the glutes, squeeze the bench with my upper thighs and dig my heels into the floor. If you’re going to compete work on the stance now and find the right width for your legs, making sure that your heels don’t touch the base underneath.
When the bar is handed off I always pause at the top to lock everything in, squeezing the bench with traps, glutes and thighs. I lower the weight and as I hear the PRESS command I dig into the floor as I press the weight to lockout.
I am no CT that is for sure. This is how it works best for me. Best of luck to you.[/quote]
