Does anybody here set up their bench press like CT, shrugging the shoulders and what not? I’ve tried this but it feels very wrong and uncomfortable and hard for me to keep tight. I can’t provide a video at the moment, but I’m just curious if anybody else benches like this (low incline or flat).
I usually just pull my shoulders blade back, arch my upper back, and push my traps into the bench, but not really shrugging them as I would with an actual shrug. With a flat bench press I use a bit less arch so I actually have a ROM.
Side note - decline bench. I have a hell of a time setting that up so any tips or cues would be helpful. It’s rather difficult to set this up as if I was just doing a regular bench press.
