I have been doing push pressed for about a year now and have started wondering what the proper technique would be because I have seen it done two ways.
One way is pressing it and getting full extension of the legs and hips while pressing it and at that point keeping your legs straight (the way I have been doing it) And then second way is almost like a push jerk and after you explode up you dont drop all the way underneath it, but you bend your knees to get underneath it.
Another quick question is the elbow placement. Should they be brought up and have you upper arm relatively parallel to the floor, or to get your arms underneath it. If so why are they placed there. Are the elbows brought up to help eliminate the involvement of the triceps in the movement?
