Which do you prefer and why?
I'm a USAPL lifter but I just Jioned the APF and they allow you to bench up on your toes.
I just did a equipped push/ pull meet this weekend and if it wasnt for the DL I would have been at the bottom rankings in my wt. class...
These guys killed me in the BP due to the insane amout of arch and reduced ROM it allows. After the meet one of the top guys in the 242's showed me his set-up in the warm-up room. I was impressed to say the least... He probably took 2-3" off my bench stroke that quick.
What experiences have you guys had w/ this style of benching and would you advise me to change my heels down style since the APF allows you to be on your toes?
Thanks for the input,
