When you are holding the bar during a bench press, your fists should be facing upwards not sideways. When they start facing sideways, you will be able to see the back of your hands. This is a bad sign.
It's putting too much pressure on your wrists. You could seriously hurt yourself.

I think the width of my arms were such that my arms formed about a 70 degree angle when the bar was at my chest. Is that clear? Are my hands supposed to form a straight, vertical line with my arms?
