Or at least what works really well for me lol   I also think everyone should try number 4, the Nordic Ham Curl. It is far superior to a glute ham raise in my opinion. Will give you bulletproof hamstrings

You should drop this program, I think. Your glutes hasn't enough time to recover, so you can't continue with it

I wish I had this problem. That kind of glute activation is a good thing, right? I don't feel deadlifts much in my glutes, but instead they fry my lower back. I'd always imagined if I could only shift some of that stress to my glutes life would be much better.

yeah, it's good i don't need to worry about glute engaging.But it's still kinda annoying...

This is not a bad thing. Gluten re a very dormant muscle in most people. Just use other exercises to stress your neglected areas as usual.

Bench Press Technique & Flaring

wtenerelli says

I'm a little late here but the point at which you flare your elbows is on an individual basis. The way it was explained to me by Mike Tuchscherer was the reason to flair as to keep your elbows and wrists under the bar, if you try to stay trucked the whole time and are pressing back towards your face off you chest like you should you're going to dump the weight on your face so you flare you elbows out as you press up and back. Here is a video of my bench, this is my close grip bar path but it doesn't change much when i'm doing comp. grip or benching in a shirt.

 

You touch super low so I can see what you mean about flaring at a different point in the lift on the way up.  Bigger lifters can actually get away with touching lower and incorporating more hip pop/leg drive since your butts are bigger, whereas the smaller lifters will almost always certainly raise them off the bench (losing contact) if they touch too low with heavier weights and try to do the same.  

 

Flaring right off the chest generally works better for those that touch higher on the chest because at that point, your shoulders are basically in the most optimal position to start the flare.

Bench Press Technique & Flaring

Thanks.  When you started flaring did you find that you ever end up pushing the bar too far back?  If so, any tips on how to fix this or is it just practice?

I have done it here and there.  It just takes practice to find that perfect groove.  When you do, it's like hitting a grand slam.
