Dan green sinks the bar into his chest a lot.  Might want to try his technique.


I've actually thought about that lately. Once in awhile I get winded and just rest the bar on my chest, never bothers me.

Watch his bench.  It looks like he completely relaxes losing arch and everything.  Upon the bench command, BOOM! ARCH! DRIVE! and the bar bounces up and he seems to just finish with his triceps.  That bar sinks DEEP dough.

Nothing in the rules says you can't as long as your ass stays on the bench.  He just asks that you inform the judges you are a "sinker" in the rules meeting.

It's been a while since I could post in here.  Actually, I did PR bench and deadlift in my May meet, but no vids so no posts.  Here's today's 15lb squat.  Next month, I hope to post 3 new videos.

Dan Green admits that sinking is a way to "cheat" by using his body to push the bar out of the hole and then use that momentum to drive the bar up. Just make sure your leg drive is on point or you may get pinned.
Also you are correct, it's not against the rules

Thanks, guys.

Technically, this isn't a PR for me, but it's the only video I have of me benching 275 since I didn't get any vidz at my last meet.  For this reason, I did it twice. 8)

It felt a lot harder than it looked.

Always impressed at your bench form and 275 with pauses is a decent milestone.

Thanks, Bando.  It feels like it took forever to get to this point.  I was hoping to have 275 up in the beginning of this year.  I'm hoping to be at 3 plates before the end of next year.

Whaaaat?  One week and 3 PRs?  Hell yeah, buddy!

Yes, it's a meager 5lb PR on deadlift and still IMO 50lbs shy of what I'd think is respectable for my weight but I'll take any new weight on the bar as a positive sign.

New PR for bench press from today.  5lb PR with 280.  Hope to find another 5lb next weekend.

My new PRs!  There really should be 3 of them for this post, but I got a little nervous after grinding out 275 for my 2nd attempt on bench.  I lowered my planned 3rd attempt from 285 to 280 to ensure a meet PR but the 280 went up faster than 275 did.

squat:  475 - 20lb PR (50lb meet PR)


deadlift:  415 - 20lb PR (25lb meet PR)

grats on that squat PR and RPS world record.

That one will stand for a long, long time
1 year, 6 days.  No longer mine.  Someone squated 415 a week after our NY meet. Kinda makes me want to cut back to 165 one last time.


Naaa.
