I was working up to a max on bench press and when I attempted 295, I nearly got it but I had a smidgen of help on the bottom.
I felt like I had the power in my back and chest and it felt like the weight was being pushed off my chest like a spring. The thing is that I got this weird feeling of pressure on the inside of both elbows that wouldn’t allow me to transfer that spring and power to the bar at the bottom. I never had the feeling before.
What can I do to correct the problem. What is that pressure?
warm up progression-barx10, 135x5, 185x5, 225x1, 255x1, 275x1, 295xmiss
3 years working out, one of which is training for powerlifting.
long arms, narrow torso (opposite of barrel chested)
I think it might be because my bis and tris weren’t strong enough to support transfer of force. I’m really uncertain.
