EC, Limited ROM: Sheer Genius

I’m bench pressing again.
I tried to find my SRP: I’d have to use a cambered bar to reach it (it’s lower than my chest when I’m on a bench).
So I stop the bar 2-4" off the chest when lowering, and my shoulders no longer complain.

I guess this is equivalent to a two board press?

assume you injured your shoulder from BP in the first place? ifso use PL form and closer grip; problems you shall not have.

I use PL form and slightly wider than shoulder-width grip.

The idea was that EC’s suggestion of using a limited ROM is superb.
