Berz puts it on the ground. I put mine on the DB rack.

I have a video but it was only 10 reps with the 90s. Not too proud of it. Will try again tomorrow.

Not so good at flat bench. Previous best was 80lbs. Tried 95lbs, no go.

10 x 85lbs @ 196 lbs. I'll try 90 next time.

Splmash - 14 reps of 90lbs @ 175lbs.

I can probably hit 16 or 17 if I had adequate rest. The spotter didn't help at all, even though his hands are touching my arm. I have a really bad shoulder and it was just precaution. I should've went a little lower, but shoulder is again limited.

But here it is. My hairless legs and all:

It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.

I know! I never noticed that habit until today. I never used to do that, and I'll have to be conscious about it from now on. Form is important to me and I would rather go down in weight than do a bad rep. Thanks for the heads up.

Oh and I hate how my legs look so pinner from that angle. And jiggly.

Another tip would to not drag the weight across your body, looks as though your pulling them up with your shoulders. Although it may not hurt or anything now; it'll effect your shoulders in the long run. Kick the weights up from your knee and roll back. And keep your head on the bench.

I'll post a video tonight.

Thanks for the tip. Anything under 100 I tend to get the weight up like that. For 100lb DBs and above, I swing my legs back to get it up. I'll keep it in mind though.

People probably know this already, but a friend showed me good way to get the db's up for flat bench. I find kicking the weights up with my knees doesn't work for me above 80lbs.

Put the weight on your knees and then keep your arms straight/even and tighten your core and bring your whole body back in one motion and your db's will be in the air above you. Reverse the motion for the putting the weights back down.

I know I am late but I did the squat challenge. 13 @ 135. Three more than I expected to do and I felt like I probably could've pushed out a couple more if I had a spotter

Got to 11x100lbs on the second attempt

11th rep needed a bit of a spot, not sure if that counts.

Most people have shit form when it comes to DB presses. They're just not used to the stabilizing the weight. I actually think most people on here will probably count those 2 inch bull shit reps.

I go elbows to 90 degrees. When warming up with like 40's I'll stretch out by coming down until the weight actually touches my chest and hold it for 15 seconds between reps.

Yup, some people are pretty bad.
