I was wondering if anyone on here has used the foam block that is applied to the barbell, to create space between the barbell and your chest.
My lifting buddy suggested I use the block to keep my shoulders from going through the range of movement that causes the pain, which is basically all the way down to the chest.
We tried it out and I had good results. Is this a common practice? Obviously I know full range of motion is best, but I got a good workout and I was able to bench again without pain.
