new to benching with a shirt.

just got the apex single ply today and was eager to put in on. I thought i was giving myself a little play with the measurements but damn it was very tight in the shoulders. I was sold on some of the videos of guys putting the shirt on themselves because i work out alone. I'll have to admit it wasn't that difficult to get mine on. However while putting on the shirt i felt as if my shoulders are rounding forwards and on the verge of dislocating. I was no where close to touching and the backs of my arms are all jacked up now.

What's the deal. Is this the right sized shirt? I heard they should be tight and uncomfortable but i am unsure if I am doing this right.

any feedback would be great.

Yeah it is definitely supposed to be tight lol. You WILL NOT touch for a while if it fits right. Take your time breaking it in. I have a single and 3 ply. Think the single jacks the back of your arms up? I should send you pics of mine after using my 3 ply lol. This is a shirt with lots of support and will definitely bite you if you rush it. Hope that helps! And also try using some boards(start with 4 or 3) and work your way down slowly to break it in! Steve
