I actually felt really strong. I have been using my legs more like you said and it helps a lot.

I changed it up and started doing singles instead of doubles on reps. I felt that my form slightly changes on the second rep. I feel like I'll get more transfer to a max lift with singles, and just perform more sets to match the volume I usually get with doubles.

One thing I was going to ask you: do you use any wrist wraps or something on bench? I notice many use that.

Yo Gabe! You are definately strong as heck. For you and I, i dont think its necessary to use anything for wrists. Even on decline I have lifted as much as 360 and never had any problems. So basically I wouldnt really wrap until after 315 minimum, and from my experience with our wrist density it may not be even necessary at that point.

Yeh, that leg drive is critical, and so is pinching your shoulder blades and pressing in a direct straight line up so you waste no movement

Not in a long while...I have to consider it. I am in great grove on bench now.

I am digging the singles, too. It really allows me to focus on each rep. I just do more sets to get the volume I need. But I feel my repetition quality on power and heavy days is much greater with this method.

^^^staggard above to with calve raises
3 sets belt squats 50 lbs w/ reverse hyperextensions 25 lbs
