"There is no such thing as 'Board Press Nationals'."
For all you geared lifters out there, when it comes to benching, you MUST be able to get the bar to your target point before the meet. Even putting a belt atop your bench shirt is still a higher elevation than competition. While boards are a great training tool, DO NOT mistake them for a translatable press from a shirt.
