OK so, I have never been a big bench press guy my coaches in high school really stressed Squats, Power Cleans,and Deads and those have always been my bread and butter. I've just recently started benching regularly previous to this (10 years ago) I mainly did DB Presses.
The big issue I have is that from my 0-3 inches or so off my chest I got nothing, If I stop before I break that plain I can push 225 for a couple, but if I get too close to my chest it's going no where.
I know people use board presses to correct weak points but from what I've seen most people use them to work the top end of the bench. or did I miss some thing? Anyways I've been trolling training articles and haven't seen anything that looks like my issue. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!
