In two of the T-Nation videos, 6 weeks to a superhero bench and the general bench press technique video, you explained why the traps should be shrugged for raw benchers.
Is there any article or video where you elaborate more on how to get into this position? Is it simply shrugging up, or do you pull your shoulder blades together and back, and then shrug up? Are the upper traps supposed to be the main point of contact or the whole upper back? And are there any specific exercises to groove the technique for this?
If CT has elaborated on this anywhere else, would someone please post it for me in here so he doesn’t have to repeat himself?
