The bench press is usually the first exercise in the gym that we learn. It appears fairly easy, lie back on a bench, lower the bar to your chest and the push back up again.
Because it is the first exercise many of us do, I have a theory that most of us use in-proper technique with the bench. So, the purpose of this thread is to re-visit the bench press.
What cues to you use for the bench press? Do you shrug your shoulders or do you you prefer the "shoulder back and down" approach?? How well do you keep your upper back tight? Do you try and pinch your upper back/lats? How much do you arch?
