What in the world is causing my bench to get stuck at the bottom? What can I do to overcome this?

LOL. :zipit:

I also vote for more lat/upper back work.

If you can't get the bar off your chest, it's because your back is weak.

What's your lat/upper back work like now?

rear delts, lats,... also speed work, dumbells, illegal wide grips.

He's probably strong enough, the weight is just too heavy.

Turn the magnets off.

or speed work and dumbell benches.

But the magnets would work faster.
