Where are the dudes who take off the 10's and leave you just pressing an empty bar- ah that was a different thread never mind.

On a different note I'm glad I'm not the only one jamming boards under my shirt and then having to adjust them. I've even resorted to having my 9-year-old hold the boards in place.

its fun isnt it?

what you need is a board man, so you can really take it up a notch, by not racking it til you do a full cycle of the boards.

my partner hates me.

I typically double up a mini band and use that to keep the board in place. Of course, I do very little board pressing.

Doubled mini band around chest & board works well.

Why not just duct tape the boards if you're getting splinters?

We used to do these from a 1 board all the way to a 6 board, then just because my teamates and I felt like being assholes, we added in a foam board, and did it at a 7th level. Our triceps, we could hear them cry, it was brutal.
