    I've always been taught to not arch my back when benching... also another thing is what about isolation benching when you put your feet up on the bench... i mean i'm not trying to get huge or anything. maybe just attempting to rep at 225 is my goal... at least for now... i' dont boost off or push off with my feet. i try not to use my feet and just use my arms and chest... am i benching wrong or right?

    Next to a tripod, an arch is the most stable structure known to man. I arch when I do EVERYTHING, including standing, and i'm a tank.
