The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    315 x 3 raw bench press, looking for advice/comments

    315 lb bench press for 3 reps weighing about 171 lbs. 20 yrs old. I'm alot heavier now than I have been. This was the first time I ever did 3 plates. felt good so I went to 325 and did 1 rep right after this (no video). I am guessing my 1 rep max around 335. Maybe 325 with a pause?
    Last June I weighed around 150 and cut to 148lb class with raw competition lifts of
    415 lb deadlift
    265 lb bench
    345 lb squat

    Not the best video but I am looking for advice on setup or anything else you can see. All info and comments appreciated.
    Thanks

    Drive the bar up in a straight path. You come off your chest and immediately go towards your chin and then press out. You want a straight line from the chest to lockout.

    Chris could he correct that by tucking a bit more with the elbows?
