    Yes I totally agree and that is why I thought I would post this. Very easy to understand no matter what lifting experience, and it really helps.

    does anybody know what video that's from? I would really like to finish hearing and seeing everything else he does in the video. It seems very helpful.

    With all due respect, I have to disagree with his point on the bar path. I feel most of the best benchers push up at an angle, not straight up.

    That video might be a bit outdated as far as shirted benching is concerned. With the newer shirts with lower grooves, I believe bench specialists like Metal Militia and others advocate throwing it back over your face (or close to it) and flaring hard at the top.

    Not a problem, I was hoping it would help alot of people out, and from the looks of things, it seems it did.

    Pete, I think that the best of the best, shirted or raw, have a sloped barpath from touch to lockout. Just watch the video's posted on this website.
