Those are some big lifts monsta.

It's hard to tell from this angle but you may want to try and tuck your elbows in a bit. This will def help save your shoulders and give you some more power off the lift. Also if you try and keep your weight on your traps that will help give you a bigger arch and a shorter ROM.

I will try and find the Info that was given to me - and it helped.

i feel you on tuckin my elbows more. dont think i can put to much of an arch in my back though. i was benchin for so long with my feet in the air i just got used to my back being completely flat. also my feet barely touch the ground so i would have to push off with my toes if i did that

Arching the back really helps I find but if you think that you can do it with (and it looks like you will real soon!) then all the power to you. I believe it helps because it puts you in a bit more of a "decline" position which is a mechanical advantage to your body. Or at least thats the way I understand it.

^^^ Agreed. I had no idea you were this fucking large, Monsta. If you get a lot stronger (as I hope you do) maybe you could dabble in Powerlifting

I was referring to squats and deadlifts. For sure his bench is phenomenal.

Gotcha, I'm sure your squat and deadlift would come up fast. You seem to be a *very* naturally strong guy. Not to say that you haven't worked at it!~

lol well if i can stay in the gym at least 3 times a week for a month straight then i think i will be aight lol. i just wind up doing something stupid and injuring myself which sets me back.


and honestly i have worked at getting strong and things of that nature but it just comes. i really dont have a problem making gains and what not when i am actually in the gym the numbers im doing now is not that far off from what i was doing in high school. i did 405 when i was 17. its just i didnt have access to a real gym for years, and by the time i did thats when i started getting injuries which kept me out even more.


all in all im working on getting my legs to recover and once im fully healed i am gonna work on staying that way, so i can get my leg numbers up. thanks for the support fellas.
