    I've been asked by several of you to put up a video and some tips, whatever that means. So here's a quick video of 225*I don't remember. I'm showing proper form, and broke it down into the decent and ascent for a few. I've got to get to work, but I wanted to get this up so you could ask questions and when I get home tonight I'll answer them.

    Pay attention to leg drive, elbow/forearm position, and angle of decent.

    I notice you let the bar really bury into your rib cage. Or is it just below the rib cage? I never let the bar do this. I'll try it next time.

    Have you ever broken a rib bouncing the bar off your chest?

    Nothing makes a white belt thread complete like a failed video.

    Damn you bring it really low on the ribcage. That might too far south for some feds. Not sure though.

    Are you saying I have a shitty bench?!?!?!?

    Thanks for the vid. Questions:
    1. Do you have problems sliding across the bench when leg driving? This has been a big problem for me.
    2. What are your thoughts on the Westside "straight line" vs. the ****l Milita "push towards dick, throw at face" techniques?
    3. Grip width?

    Edit: wtf? we cant say M E T A?

    So... we now have a great example of a chest-bouncing, ass-lifting bench press that wouldn't white light at a high school meet.

    Thanks.
