    I was stuck in a plateau at 230 for 3 weeks, I could rep it 4 times, I couldn't get it for 6, it didn't improve any over the course of 3 weeks, then I read an article posted by Cease about bench form for powerlifting, and applied a few of the pointers. Today I did 230 for 6 as my second-to-max lift, and actually got 240 for 4/5. I put 245 on the bar, but I didn't have a spot so after putting the weight on, resting for 3 mins, finding the right song, setting up and lifting it off the stops, I decided it was too heavy to risk and put it back on :hsugh:. Anyway, I can actually say F&N added 10 pounds to my bench.

    I thought it would have put 10 lbs on by helping you pick the tastiest whey, coolest gym clothes, best music to listen to, and most snide comments about every other person in the gym :hsugh:

    I just spent 15 mins searching and I can't find it. PM Cease or search for yourself, it was within someone else's thread, not his own topic.

    The main thing that helped me was planting the balls of my feet as far back as possible and arching my back (you'll see in the article what I mean), as well as getting under the bar better, it seems like small stuff but it really came together and made benching a lot more natural and efficient for me.
