Unison bends

When i do unison bends or two string bends on my rg 1570, the strings go slightly out of tune. Is there a way of doing such bends while still staying in tune without blocking the trem etc. ?

When you bend a string the bridge moves knocking the others out of tune.
Basically the technique i use is to rest my hand on the bridge to prevent it from raising, takes about 30mins of playing to get used to, but it should work fine.
