So.. I started lifting weights back in 2002ish after on and off stints throughout high school then a year off. I just benched, nothing special, didn't think about contractions or anything like as I was a n00b. Around 2004 I started bodybuilding and my lifting/form accented that. In setpemberish 2005 I started powerlifting, which changes a few things in regards to benching.
I have converted back to bodybuilding, since powerlifting is too much on my joints and prior injuries. I find myself unable to convert back to a bodybuilding bench form though. Odd.. Whenever I try to swap back to a regular bench with a little closer grip, not worrying about arch or any of the like that you would with PL, I find that it is ridiculously uncomfortable. I have "grown" into my PL form on my bench. I just find this odd. Any ex PLers gone BB and have advise on how to change form back to BBing?
Was curious to know if anyone else has experienced this as well?
