Does this happen with anyone else? How can I prevent it?
it goes away in time
leg drive in my bench?
I get cramps in my legs when I bench!! But that is due to them being too low, damn you short ass lifters!
..... what's funny?
he probably has zero leg drive...
Stop benching like a powerlifter.
Leg drive usually won't hurt your back. Arching can bother it, especially if you're not used to it. If you lift your ass up while pressing then you're using your legs to force an arch beyond what you can do, and that is a sure way to hurt your back.
If you're picking up your ass, move your feet further back, wider, or both. If you're not picking up your ass and it's just the arch, then work on staying tight and arching a little more each time, as well as stretching after you bench.
Hmm I guess this translates to me as "stop being a pussy"
i need leg drive
I prefer to spread my legs out and turn my feet out. Pulling them back killed my lower back.
yea bro go bench with your arms at 90degrees for ultimate wingspan bench
Yes but you are a long armed freak. No part of you is built to bench. Hell, I'm surpised anyone lets you bench, they should just give you your opener and move on to the deadlifts.
GT is right, lots of guys bench feet out, especially taller lifters.
thats you with your leg drive, isnt it?
I know a couple of lifter who really tuck their legs under. They don't lift in USPF. They don't get back pains though.
no it isn't
more emphasis on heels?
best to ask elitefts on there website.
