    First thing I'd recommend is having your spotters get their hands off the bar. That will really effect your groove. Move your belt down a little further so you can touch lower.

    Other than that things look pretty good in the picture, but video would be even better

    yeah it would of been nice if he wasnt touching the bar but heck.. when you have to beg for a spotter and a board holder I guess you cant be too picky? Atleast they aren't looking around the gym at the chicks while i'm trying not to kill myself LOL.. yeah I saw that new Spud Inc bench belt. I plan on ordering that this comming week. THanks

    I hear ya. Its hard to get spotters and I understand being more safe than sorry. Do you guys have a decent power rack to bench in? Maybe this would help them to feel more comfortable stepping back away from the bar and letting you do your thing.

    I don't know that you need to order a bench belt (but if you want to I'm sure it'll help) but I wear a 13mm belt, you've just gotta pull it down further. I can tell you have a shorter torso so touching low isn't as easy for you as it is for others. If you can touch lower though you'll hit that groove a little better.

    Did you try those reverse band pulldowns?
