Question About Speed Bench

Hey guys, I’ve been working out consistently for about five years, and have gotten alot stronger and I’ve seen much improvement. I just started the Westside Conjugated, and I was wondering about the technique of the Speed Bench on DE day.

Am I supposed to let the bar down slowly and then explode it up off my chest, or am I supposed to let the bar down as fast as I can and then explode it back up?

Thanks,
Charlie

Down fast, up fast.

gotcha, thanks man

gotcha, thanks man

BUT stay tight dont get sloppy going fast on the concentric. best quote ive read is treat light weight like they are havy and heavy weight like they are light.

Make each rep perfect and ATTACK it
