I have a question for those of you out there more experienced than myself… To begin, I’m 6’2 and 178 pounds (skinny as shyt). I’ve read about how tall, skinny guys are supposedly at a disadvantage because of biomechanics and blah blah blah… I hate excuses. Anyway, I finally got around to actually trying it out today. I rolled up a towel and placed it on my chest so that my elbows barely extended below the bench at the bottom of the movement.
As I’m sure you all could have predicted, it was a hell of a lot easier than getting half an inch from my chest like I was used to. So my question… In your opinions, keeping in mind that my goal is to get bigger, would it be better to keep going all the way down when I bench, or would I be better served to limit my range of motion somewhat so that I can use more weight? Any and all comments are welcome and appreciated.
