    Hey Will. Following your advice paid off big time. Today I benched 60kg for the first time since the injury, and I was feeling okay, so I figured I'll update with a video benching 65. Feeling embarrassed posting such a light lift I put 70kg on the bar...



    That felt lighter than I expected, so I surprised myself with the following set of 80kg. On the fourth rep I was getting shaky, so I just put the bar down.



    I was beginning to lose hope of recovering until I got your advice. Thanks so much. Any more tips would be greatly appreciated. All the best

    Yonason, those look 1,000x better. Fantastic work. Only big thing I see here is your bench is too tall for you. You may need to think about placing a bumper plate on the ground beside both sides of the bench and place your feet on them. That will artificially shorten the bench and give you more ability to drive with your legs.

    Quite a sharp eye you have there Will! I just measured the height of my bench; 19.5 inches, with the top 1.7 inches being of foam. And I see that Mark Rippetoe designed his bench to be 17 inches.

    How much do you think putting bumper plates under my feet can help? (how much more can I expect to lift with that boost?) (and does the current height have any effect on the lack of stability in my lift that aggravates the tendinitis?)

    And the little things?
