if bench is weak... do more bench.

also for every push movement, do 2 pull movements.

does not work for wanking

Thanks for that, Yer i hear that you should counter the pushing. Face pulls are a good one apparently

Bench is a little on low side compared to squat (assuming thats below parallel in a rack). Just hit it more often with lower reps and eat. Elbows shouldnt flare out, keep them tucked in.

Yer thats what i didnt check when doing it, was alone also. Will have to get someone to look at me when there next.

Elbows tucked in for bench? Ideally you want somewhere in between, tucking them in to far uses your tri's to much and is more a power lifting movement then one for building muscle.

I don't even care where my elbows are, unless I have an injury. Your body will have it's own form, different to everyone else's. Tucked in or not, whatever, none of that will stop you from getting strong in bench.

What do your sets and reps normally consist of for bench and how often a week do you do it?

Just stick to BB rows.

I find Pendlay Rows forces me to use good form.

Chins are also good.

Always start each rep by pulling the shoulder blades back first.

I generalised my comment too much. By tucked in I don't mean 90 degress to your body or close to your body, somewhere in between like you said, I use about 45 deg. herpa derp on my behalf.

I can't do bench with a barbell anymore, hurts my shoulders for some reason, have to use dumbells instead, sucks having stronger shoulders then my chest, makes it hard to hit chest correctly :unsure:

how did you come to the conclusion that sore shoulder while benching with barbell = stronger shoulders?

The shoulder is a pretty complex joint/socket.

Lots of shit can go wrong with it and/or smaller muscles be left behind when other parts get stronger.

How strong are you with good form bent over barbell rows?

How is your shoulder mobility?

Pretty common issue with the bench/bro-press . I keep away from trying to bench heavy until my shoulders, back and triceps are ready for it.

As TTT said the shoulder mobility is a killer. If you have built the muscles for a strong shoulder girdle your bench will be stronger than without.

Lol ^ so true.

Yes, I don't go heavy for bench (do it at home to avoid embarrassment), but do Matrix 5 sets of 5x5x5x5

Woodchops! I want birds' fingers in me!!!!

;)

    • So….. I’ve replaced all the coils and made sure I have a spark by fitting a spark plug to one of the new coils and cranking the engine. I’ve ensured I have fuel by removing what I assume is the ‘return to tank’ fuel line and cranking the engine. So I have a spark and fuel and the car still won’t run. Any ideas? may be time to get an auto electrician out! 
    • EFI Solutions aka Taarks have a great kit just for that. Better to have facts/data before making a decision. https://www.efisolutions.com.au/exhaust-pressure-sensor-pulse-damper-emap
    • I'm not sure why you removed the sound deadener???  Don't bother with DIY remedies... this is how you can do it properly. For the lightly stained areas, just stick to a fine grade wet sand paper....and then paint over once the stain is gone. For the worst areas...especially the pitted ones...you just need to sand the rust in the localised spot working down from a heavier grit to medium grit wet sandpaper, which will get most of the rust off. It's just localised rust from the spare wheel touching the boot. Don't go to town on sanding the whole boot...not needed! Try to avoid sanding the seam sealer etc (obviously) After the rust spots are down to bare metal - use a fine brush dipped in "RUST DEOXIDISER"...and carefully apply this to the little rust areas. It's important the chemical you use is DEOXIDISER. After applying that, let it sit for a while and obviously wipe off with prepsol before it dries, and repeat 3-4 times. If you go to a panel shop they will probably be able to sell you some - as the trade products are a shitload stronger than retail products. After deoxidising the rust, scuff the surrounding paint with red scotch brite....& then you are ready to apply etch primer and then paint the matte gray colour on. Mask up the surrounding area using tape & paper..... as you don't need to paint the whole boot, just blend it in and keep the repair as small as possible. Spray can paint or spray gun depending on your level of expertise will be fine. Probably will cost you about $100-$150 in materials.  
    • Interesting. The 30/900 looks right on paper but weather it gives me enough headroom is the question. I dont have a pressure sensor in the exhaust manifold so I won't know if I have a restriction unfortunately.
    • It depends if your current turbine is a restriction or not, if it is go up to the 35, it’s it’s not then stick the 30. Also the g30 turbine wheel will flow more then your gt30 one either way you go the compressor wheel is going walk away from your current turbo
