So does it really matter where your arms during a bench? That guy’s arms are no where near where Dave Tate’s video shows. His are where the majority of people have them during a bench, elbows straight out east and west.
How can ya say his elbows are not tucked in that vid??
Because he’s not benching with his upper arms completely parallel with his body and touching the bar near his navel. Duhhhh.
Show me anyone who benches big raw with that style. You won’t find anyone. That is great form for benching in the shirt, but you can’t press big like that raw. The ideal line for raw benching is a lot higher on the chest.
I’m pretty sure that everyone just witness Stan pressing big raw with that style[/quote]
You are trying to tell me that his forearms are perpendicular to the ground and he is touching the bar down by his “naval”? LOL you must have rocks in your head.
I think this is the problem with the internet. It is so easy to misunderstand people. I freaken like Stan and I like what he is doing for raw lifting. I was responding to someone else who thinks that raw lifters should bench the same way as equipped guys. Perp forearms, LOW touching on the belly etc. It is not going to happen. Good raw pressers bench more like Stan with a higher line and less tuck of the elbows.
