    What are you trying to accomplish by the movement? Power only? Hit the chest for size? Etc.

    Good questions. Also what is your bodyweight compared to the weight you are moving?

    Your form doesn't look the best to me, but I 1) am no bodybuilder, 2) can't catch a football to save my life, and 3) have next to zero strength. So, you know, who cares what I think?

    That said, are you maxing without a spotter?

    Thank you for joining the forum, Dadbod00. Awesome username! :-D

    But I'd encourage you to listen to whycutback's advice and do more sets of those five solid reps and less singles or PR seeking.
