Stevec, thanks for the reply.

Did this tonight when I did bench and noticed a few things. May be things that just come with time, but a few questions/observations:

1) I didn't feel a great deal of direct chest involvement at all. I had to use a slightly closer grip to bring my shoulders and elbows in tight, so I recruited triceps more

2) I had difficulty maintaining the position through all 5 reps, especially heavy. Puts decent strain on the lower back

3) Glutes and hams felt almost more tired than upper body from the lifts.

I would imagine, like the press, that this form becomes more comfortable and sustainable with time?
