Spoke with Ex over the weekend, what a stand up guy, I am not a paying client but yet he spent 30 mins going over lifts with me and we gonna try a new bench setup to get my legs more involved.Basically moving my feet out front a bit and trying to get my ass off the bench. I deloaded last week so I thought why not work up and see how this feels, the work up went great but as I got sweatier and sweatier it became real hard to not slide off the bench!! I chalked the shit up out of my back and the bench but no dice! I missed 120kg but I am sure with a little practice and refinement I’ll nail it very soon cos the warm-ups moved faster than they have in a long time. I did some tris after then hit bis and rows to finish.

Hit the floor press today for a single, I think I found an exercise I need to be hitting hard again, my floor press is down about 20lbs still, which I guess is good in one way cos it means my leg drive on bench is better!, had a shitty day and only managed to hit 110kg, def feeling beat up at the moment, work is very stressful right now.

Just glancing over your notes

Why would you want to do this ?

trying to get my ass off the bench
In any meet I've been in this is a no lift.

Use your legs ( as you mentioned ) but keep your ass on the bench and drive your legs into the ground.

What's your bodyweight at these days? And I'm not sure I've ever asked but what is your height?
