I always found that form mattered MUCH more than the amount of weight I could sling around. Proper form with lower weight in all lifts will yield better results. If you're having to throw the weight with momentum instead of strength, or you're bouncing it off your chest for the next rep, then you'd be better off lowering the weight and going slower. You might impress an inexperienced lifter in the gym with all those plates, but to those who are serious about it and have taken the time to do their due-diligence in learning the proper methodology of lifting, you'll be the laughing-stock of the bench!
