    I can't believe I haven't seen a thread on this ..

    Benching with long pauses more than I (or most) can easily do in deads ... game lost.

    He's even got a press of 240 with a pause of like an hour ...

    I can't decide what's worse. The fact that you made a post saying it's shitty form, or that you really believe it is shitty form.

    Either way you are screwed. You ever wonder how seemingly normal people can do astoundingly retarded things? Mind bogglingly stupid things? Things that make other people around them dumber?

    Well, sorry to tell you this, but you are one of those people. It could be caused by a variety of things. Poor education. Too much time in front of a TV, but either way, you speak (type) before you think -if you think at all. You lack any deductive reasoning or ability to put things in perspective, and on top of that, your math skills are lacking. Wait, there is more. The final icing on the cake, the coup de grace in this little seemingly simple 1 sentece statement you make, is the complete and utter lack of any common sense.

    So, when are you going to do your astoundingly retarded action? Take pics, post vids.

    if that form is correct. then I'm doing them wrong. chest out back straight is the correct form. he's fucking bent over. is he strong? hell yeah. I just don't understand his need to use bad form. I'm from the school of if you can't use good form don't do the routine or use that much weight. not sure what he's trying to prove

    Form is great.

    That being said a 507 x 3 bench is not that impessive for youtube numbers. My lifting partner does 495 x 5 raw pretty often.

    You're more of the school of "too stupid to understand why he's doing that but feels entitled to spew your worthless opinion anyway". That isn't a highly rated school, btw, but lots of members. My alternate answer is provided below.

    1: Why do you think chest out straight back is correct form?
    2: What do you think changes when the form changes?
    3: Do you think there is a reason to change the form?
    4: What do you think the individual doing the exercise has for goals?
    5: What do you define as "good form"?
    6: What would you recommend for the individual in question to better reach his goals?
    7: What makes his form "bad", and why?

    1. lol srsly?
    2. you recruit other muscle groups to assist in the effort. possible injury
    3. is there a good reason to change your form?
    4. not 100% sure
    5. performing the movements with the appropriate muscle group, and not transferring the weight
    6. a different exercise? btw if you know of a good one I'm all ears. because i've outgrown that excercise. I don't want to have to hang weights off of it like that.
    7. see #2

    if his back was flat against a wall (back straight) he probably couldn't do that exercise with that weight

    1: seriously.
    2: recruiting other muscle groups does not cause possible injury. It's usually not done by body builders because they are focusing on a single muscle.
    3: Yes. Different goals.
    4: He is one of the worlds top powerlifters. Strength is his goal.
    5: Transferring the weight is fine. He transferred the motion to be a combination extension/press. This takes unnecessary stress off the elbows and still allows him to use enough weight. Would I do it like that? Nope. Do I have a problem with him doing it? Not at all, and neither should you.
    6: He's fine the way he is.
    7: Wrong. Naive. He's basically taking an isolation movement and turning it into a compound movement. There is nothing wrong with that. Is it still a pushdown? Sure, he's "pushing" "down".

    Basically you saw a high level lifter modify a bullshit exercise so it was useful for his goals. You should learn to differentiate between that and some jackass high school twink who just is using more weight than he can handle.
