Making progress on my bench setup

Although my numbers have been steadily improving over the years, I have never felt I was able to get tight enough when benching.. The pros who I have shared my vids with tend to agree.

Today I spent some time working strictly on setup and getting properly up on my traps when benching. I didn't go any heavier than 275, as I wanted to be able to work on setup for awhile without getting too fatigued.

I modified my setup by putting my feet up on the bench after I set my grip so I can push myself onto my traps, and then setting my legs in position...

I really like the progress! Feels much better.. Can't wait to try it in the shirt Wednesday.
