For bench I do a half powerlift position. Contact with upper back and feet only. Head on bench but not doing anything. Shoulders neutral. Back with a slight arch but mostly flat. Ass off the bench but not pushing pelvis up. I dont tuck my legs under and close, I keep them wide and in slightly more than perpendicular. Elbows in a bit.

So with that, when I press, the important part is I squeeze my ass, and back and quads and push hard with my heals like Im trying to push my heals into the floor. This naturally will lift your ass off the bench a little. But by doing this you keep your base solid.

For flat bench the bar comes to sternum.

I do basically this for bar or dumbell, flat or incline.



I guarantee you if any of you arent sure about your bench form, focus on squeezing your ass and pushing with your heals next time, you will lift more.

your lifts are going to go a bit down when you try the powerlifting technique, after a while it will start boosting though

LOL it takes time.. you're supposed to use your whole body when you're doing the powerlifting technique. Though it doesn't target the chest as much as the flat bench you gain a lot more power in your back, forearms, and legs

I do mine flat bench but pinch my shoulders so i won't flare my elbows to prevent any future shoulder injuries and that targets my chest the most, and i don't want to go super heavy because not a lot of people workout when i go in the morning so spotters aren't really an option

who's going to catch that weight ?

yea with mixed grip i could do 255 x 5 before pulling my back with double overhand today i could barely do 225 x 3, a bro told me mixed grip gives uneven stress on your back and traps and forearms like more on one side than the other, so i switched it up but i feel much more comfortable with mixed grip

Id say overhand until your grip gives out.

Wife was wondering why I was moaning in ecstasy this morning for no reason when I woke up. She doesn't know what it feels like the day after a deadlift PR

you could always do mixed grip on both sides, like switch after 3 reps then do the other 3 with different hand positioning

and keep in mind you're putting your bicep at risk of getting torn if you do mixed grip too often, besides overhand grips makes you get beast forearms and strong grip

Anyone else do their bodyweight chinups like this?

Mine are usually more like a 'squat in mid-air' position though. Lean way back, and you can really feel the lats burn
