    Very good lifts for you weight! I suppose your height helps a little, but none the less... impressive!

    i haven't benched in a shirt in a few months. i need to get ready for a meet in january. i decided to try a different grip today to see if it is any more effective. i originally used a medium-grip and would tuck in my elbows hard basically to a close-grip at the bottom to touch and then let them go back out as i pushed up. today i tried to go wide-grip while still using the tucking techinque. i was able to get a lot more weight, but i couldn't touch although i was close with the 315. i think i'm going to have to move to a slightly narrower grip.
