View Full Version : Very small changes to your bench

As I said earlier, my training partner nail 905 on his bench in training. It was his first time ever to even try this much weight. He already had a World Record bench of 777 in wabdl for his weight and age group. I've been telling him for years he can bench 900, but he never believed me. For the last couple of years I have been trying to tell him to move he hand placement in. Finally, he took my advice. He moved his hand placement in about a finger and a half. Now he was touching easier and his speed off his chest was much fast. This may or may not work for everyone, but it really worked for him. Some lifters want to lift very wide. I think that is good if your a big or very wide person. If not, move your hands in some. You might be very surprised what a difference it makes. It is always good to play with your hand placement and see what works best for you.
