First time doing these. If I did them wrong or if you see something I can do to improve please let me know. If they are good then let me know that too. Thanks
Warm-ups. Legs extended flat on the floor for each set.
70lbs 2 sets x 10
80lbs 2 sets x 10
That was it. The floor presses felt ok, just trying something different. Hopefully they will help out my flat bench.

Good stuff Cyrus!
Only thing I'd recommend is having your arms come in full contact with the floor. Almost a pause, not quite, but almost. You don't want to slam the floor though.
Wow man. You are insanely strong... are you sure your max bench is only 480?? With a floor press of 455 x 3, I would think it'd be more than that!

Cyrus has posted a video before of him doing 500 for an easy very strict single. Very strong bencher. I believe 480 is his contest best to date?
Very strong! Good work!

Damn man very impressive especially for a natty lifter and raw. Apparently you don't compete in the squat but do you train with them?
Im With Travis. Little More Arm On The Floor And Use Just A Slight Pause. Also We Always Start From The Bottom
yea it is tri intensive so it is good to get through lock out sticking points. It helps in that you are moving dead weight with no stretch reflex at the bottom of the lift, kinda like a box squat for squatting.
