If taking your shirt off would increase anything, I think I'mma start excercising butt naked.

While that does sound fun! I think he was referring to a bench shirt...  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bench_shirt

Anyone got advice on the best techs to use if your feet don't reach the floor?? When I bench at home my feet don't quite reach the floor ...  I'm 5 foot..

build wooden blocks, they are allowed in comps as well.
Until then you can put weight plates on the floor where the feet are.
Preferably rubber plates as they are easier to stack.
If you have one of those 'step-up' boards, you can perhaps use that between aerobics sessions.

Both me, JPegg and Wolfe does. Cool

Its all gravy baby, as they say. The more you intake the more you refine. You can never be perfect, even considering the ever chaning biomechanics and tissue changes of the body occuring all the time.

I am having trouble utilizing my legs. I try tucking my feet under me as I press down on my hips, arch my back and have my shoulders pinched together but my legs start dancing around when I press hard. I try not to do this but it's involuntary.
