i'm still new to powerlifting, so i don't know a lot. is there a reason they're benching only to the board and not all the way to the chest?

Good vid, man. Lifts are insane! Lol @ "steve's cream-colored shirt" and the "legendary" chineck. 900+ lb bench...I can't even imagine what it takes to hold that...let alone move it. Solid, bro.

often times shirted benchers (and some raw guys as well) will bench to boards to work on specific portions of the lift, such as lockout from different heights. the shirt gives you a lot of pop off the bottom, but you have gotta have the tricep strength to lock it out. thats where the boards at various heights help out.

Hopefully Rob will explain the boards in more detail. I know one reason is it reduces wear and tear on your shoulders. You can't shirt up every week and go full ROM. You'll beat the crap out of yourself. Another reason is it allows you to handle heavier weights which will make you get stronger faster. Plus, from a psychological standpoint a meet lift will feel light in your hands. Mark can't bench 915 full range yet. When he goes for 850 in the meet, it'll feel lighter in his hands from handling 915. It'll make him more confident and ready for it.

The key is you can't only do boards the whole training cycle if you're a beginner. You need to practice touching weights too. Guys like Mark can use boards all the time, because he has a ton of shirted bench experience. The guy has benched 800+ in a meet a ton of times.

Awesome video. I always like the super training videos, good stuff.

At least for me, those two above. It lets you get used to holding/moving heavier weight ( heavier than what you can bench to your chest ), which helps break through mental barriers and helps build a good lockout when benching shirted.

Another good video. It looked to me like the first two 840 lifts of Mark Bells, which he had troubles with, it looked like his belt was riding a little higher on the belly than the last one. Maybe it just looked that way since the last one the belt was covered. Wild Bill, your 500 looked EZ. Good job.

They are working boards because I said so. I that a thurough enough answer for you guys?

Mark is a exsperience bencher and has little trouble touching and can handle anything he can hit off a 1 brd full range. He is doing a lot of heavy work again because I said so. When he gets to a meet his confidence will be strong and the weights will feel light and he will hit huge PR's We have set goals in mind for Mark and Hoss and at the rate they are going there is no reason these goals won't be surpassed.

Now don't get me wrong less exsperienced lifters programs would look nothing like Mark and Hoss's bench training that they are doing now. I base the training on the level of exsperience and the ability each individual lifter has at touching.

he says I dont...I must be the exception lol

Nice lifting at ST! Hoss should be able to lift about 900,000 pounds on the 3 brd....that stroke is perfect lol

I also noticed that Mark and I have about the same size arch ...which is none haha
