2 problems...

Post by richie97 » Tue Jul 29, 2014 1:55 am

Hey guys i have got 2 things that are bugging me in the gym,

1. My hips rise off the bench when I'm doing a flat barbell bench press as I'm pushing the bar off my chest.

2. Front squat stance: I like to have my feet a bit wider then shoulder width apart and toes pointed out, is this acceptable for a front squat, please note this is also the same stance for my low bar back squat.

you need to change the angle of your legs when you bench. If your knee is lower than your hip your a.$s'll stay on the bench.

If your front squat stance feels comfortable, then it's fine.
