Pulling the bar forward instead of lifting it off the rack is one thing that makes a huge difference. If anything I will be doing that from now on. The only shitty part is that I have long arms and am fairly tall and my partners reach is not nearly the same so for me to pull it off rather than push it up to start I have to set the starting poing a notch higher on the bench so it's a bit of a pain in the ass as my partner does not have enough reach to remove the bar from the height that works the best for me.

My chest felt more "worked" than normal though after using his method as I think it forces your chest to actually do all the work instead of recruiting other muscles.

Berz out.
yeah man, my chest still hurts from Monday

I find it odd that you never max your weight on an actual bench press. All his bench press exercises are dynamic movements.
You're not supposed to be maxing out on your regular bench press every session. The key is to do variety of bench presses instead of doing just the regular bench. The reason for this is to work on where you are weak. For example if you're weak at lockout, floor press and 3-5br press will help. Another reason is if you go day in and day out just doing one style of bench press, your body will adapt to the movement quickly and you'll most likely see your max worsen.

As for dynamic, you should be doing full ROM movement, and the purpose of DE days is SPEED w/ proper form.

I saw some dude doing bench with his feet up on the bench again on Tuesday.
I wanted to take video of the guy doing it just to show him how much force he was trying to put on his feet but since they were in a shitty spot they couldnt drive. His calfs were flexing like mad when he did it.

thats all pretty common stuff when ur lifting heavy. The main thing I try to focus on when Im going big is keeping my shoulder blades back. I need to stay tight and try to shorten the stroke of my arms as much as possible. Im 6'4 and if i dont keep my shoulder blades back I can usually put the bar right over the supports with my arms straight. Which puts me at a huge disadvantage.

Your arch is also important. But not necessarily as important as you think. Some people are stronger with a huge arch while others like myself lift bigger with a mild arch.

Also your grip width is a huge factor. Atleast it is for me. Too wide and Ill shorten my stroke even more which is good, but I lose the explosive drive at the very bottom of the lift.

Search Ryan Kennely on youtube aka benchmonster. Theres a few good clips of him benching big. He doesnt have your typical powerlifter body either, hes rather tall and not as fat as most of the super heavyweights. Trains in MMA aswell.

^^ Being tall sux when it comes to lifting... it really has no benifits at all lol. I'm 6'3 with long arms and it feels like I'm pushing forever on some exercises. My workout parter is only 5'10" and sometimes it looks like he's pushing half my distance. Bastards.

If anyone cares, I'm at week 5 of this.

In 6 months I went from 146 to 171 pounds, and today I benched 265 on my final set for 3 reps. I was lifting 2 plates before i started this 6 week program, so within 5 weeks ive gained 40 ounds to my bench. Changes in form are dramatic.

Update:

So I finished the program this week. My results are FANTASTIC. On my one rep max 2 board press I pulled off what I think was amazing for me was at 295 (two plates and a 35).

You have to imagine that 7 months ago I was a scranny kid. Like skinny as shit. My weight is consistent at the 173 range now and I think my bench is impressive. I simply rotated these two days into my regular program and it worked well. I worked extremely hard on form and keeping what I think the most important tip he gives is TIGHTNESS. In fact I'm alwasy so tight that I get cramps in my legs while lifting. So I suggest everyone go for this 6 week program.

I do pushup between 2 chairs on my light day so I can go down all the way. Also change the angle of my pushups between incline and decline. You ever do that or just regular?

what exercises do you do? chest and back on the same day is pretty tough unless your not counting in the deadlifts.

thanks
