Is this the normal way to bench while using a bench and a rack system?
I just bought this Club Weider 565 off a buddy...
You have to grab and put back the bar in front of you and it is kind of throwing me off. I've been going behind me on my last bench and thought that was the correct way to do it.
When I do the incline it isn't much of a problem as when I'm trying to flat bench. I was practicing with the bar once to find the right height and bench position and actually hit one of the holders on the way back up because they seem to be right in the way.
My buddy turned the posts around so the holders were on the outside because he hated benching in the rack to. I'm alone a lot so I need those spotter bars just in case.
Can someone shed some light on this? I have it set up just like the picture in the link with the bench going in the same way.
