I just got my Results in yesterday and today was my first time using it. After drinking it I definitely felt the tingling sensation. I was feeling pretty good and for some reason I knew today that I would smash my old bench PR! My old bench PR was 185lbs x 9 and today after drinking Results I did 185lbs x 12.

Yeah you'll notice that if you take close to working out you'll be totally cracked out from the massive quantity of sugar in the mix and you can do just about anything for about 15 minutes.

I know but they make me look so cool!! What kind of shoes would you recommend for benching or does it not matter?

Not trying to be a dick but shouldn't your back be flat on the bench?

No, it should not.

Could you explain the difference then? I truly don't know the advantages to that method of lifting.

This would be the wrong forum for that discussion Mustard. I suggest you search the PL forum and I'm quite sure you'll find what you need.

I'll handle this one Trav just so I am not thought of as a douche. However, then it's back on topic Mr. Mustard. I will not respond to any other questions, but feel free to pm me.

By arching you reduce the range of motion in the lift. There are a lot of powerlifters on this forum so our biggest concern is how much weight we push. Also, the arch allows you to bring the bar lower towards your sternum. That allows you to use your lats in the lift more. Tucking the feet helps create the arch and by tucking your feet you can drive through your legs to assist in the lift. You'll also notice his shoulders are tucked underneath him, this is another part of the technique to reduce range of motion and increase different muscle recruitement.

All of these things can assist in lifting more weight. In addition it becomes more of a compound movement whcih will build more muscle throughout the body as opposed to a flat backed predominant chest press type of bench.

Yea, what Vinny said! I'm not an expert with my bench form so don't go by me but I do know that I have a pretty good arch but there is a couple of things I need to work on. Leg drive and not moving my head are my weak points!

OK...cool thanks. I am not a powerlifter by any means so I really wasn't aware of any of that. I wasn't trying to hijack the thread so my fault if it came off that way.
