THEN DUMPED!! Well thanks a lot for all the advice and it seems to have done the trick but i guess I only won half the battle. Here is the vids of me touching yesterday and then dumping it. I think Im flaring my elbows in the hole which is causing the shirt to reject me. What do y'all think? What advice do you have? Meets in two weeks and I am thinking of just using the phenom but I would lke to make this shirt work.

Your form looks real sloppy man. Stay really tight, and keep it in the groove of the shirt. It sucks, and is a lot of pressure, but you get used to it

I'm sure the big benchers will have plenty of advice for you.

Kudos for keeping up the hard work!

Have to agree with Lones, you are all over the place and you aren't really tucking that hard.

You may need to really amp up your back work.

Those weren't really dumps though, besides the first one, but you are correct, you flared waaaay to early and let your elbows get behind the bar

Finally touched....
At first, I thought of Michael Jackson. :evillaugh:

I cant help on the bench, but Id say you got good spotters. Make sure you have them around for future benches and keep them happy.

GL,
Andrew

Your elbows are not staying under your hands. That's why you're dumping. Tuck your elbows under your hands and it will be there, with a press. Also, what are you wearing under your bench shirt, a long sleeve shirt? Get it off and the shirt will seat a little more.

Nah he aint my priest.

Tucking and elbows under the bar seem to be the solution I guess I have to work more on that.

Saw the same thing as Travis and Ryano. Once the bar gets past the elbows, it's pretty much over.
