That video posted last week on the bench press really came in handy. Just the trick to keep your scalpulae tight and dig your shoulders into the bench added a shitload to my bench. I couldn't believe how much easier the weight went up today. If I had known how much it would've helped I would've gone about 20 lbs heavier on each set. Great video man, absolutely great, probably helped me jump 6 weeks ahead in training

Amazing what proper technique can do!


#3

You should totally twitter, bro.


#4

yeah no shit. I actually got my breathing down proper on benching too, that helps more than I thought it would.


#5

Do you mind posting the video?

I'm still getting the proper technique down as well, since there's actually a lot to it. Recently I've set up a foam roll under my back to get the arch tight before a set.

totaly agree, I did this for the first time the other day, and for the first time my shoulders werent heavily involved, and I could shift more weight AND with stricter form.

I should check my technique on other moves because theres a chance it isnt perfect on other things too
