The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís 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?

    Raw Bench?

    I don't compete in anyway in lifting (aside from stitisticaly at football) so naturally i dont use a bench shirt. I read about all different types of techinique tips for squats.
    The tips are ver detailed. Like how to tuck ur shoulders, do an arch corectly, etc. But all of these tips are with a bench shirt. Do these techiniques apply the same for a raw bench? or is the pruposed of many of these tips to better incorporate the shirt in the lift?
    If anyone has any detailed raw bench tips please share.

    I've never used a shirt and I try to utilize those types of techniques in my bench pressing. I believe that shirted or not much of the same applies.
