I tend to try and keep them closer to the body, sort of like a reserve row. I read that somewhere in a powerlifting article. I think dave tate at efts. But my bench sucks ass for someone my size. I can do about 225x2 at 6'4 225 lbs, but it has taken me a good time to get here. Anyway, a lot of people seem to keep elbows perpendicular to the floor, making the t with their body. Is this correct form? Is my bench suffering because of not keeping my elbows out and perpendicular?
