    Good try. Looked like you could've had a higher arch and your shoulders pinned back under you a little more, though.

    Cool accent.

    Your grip was alot wider then him so arching your back and pushing your shoulder blades together will help you out

    close grip is harder because of the bigger range of motion.

    I also noticed that your friend uses a closer grip than most people, does he have naturally strong triceps?

    yeah, thats my training partner ward (blue superman shirt). he has some pretty big guns. he told me that he has always benched with the width, from the day he started lifting. he's like 5'7"/8" so his grip will be closer than mine naturally. i've helped him tweek some of his training and supplementation and know he's been growing like a weed and gaining massive strength.

    keep it up ward!
