    sorry no clue.

    cliffs:

    shoulder blades back, elbows slightly in, wrists straight with the bar, back straight, inhale so chest puffs up making less distance to travel, feet flat on the ground. bar should come down between pecs and abs...

    this is probably a better strength technique than a bodybuilding technique

    the guy is basically recapping what Dave Tate explained in his EFS Bench Seminar DVD, but in a horrible way.

    Put your seatbelt on idiot. Either that or don't film in a car while driving, that beeping is annoying.

    for most of the guys here a neutral spine when benching is the best.


    Also, the guy sounds like hes the intellectual equivalent of a chimp.

    so wait do you want to bring it to your stomach or chest?

    and the bar goes in the grip of the end of your fingers? not on your palms?

    i could barely tell when he was saying what was right and what was wrong
