So it turns out that I’ve been benching with my elbows flared out. Just wondering two things -
Beyond letting you use your lats to assist with the benching, is there any other performance / health benefit to benching with the elbows tucked?
Should I be trying to make my plane of motion lower (i.e. more at the level of lower chest / upper abs than at mid-chest) with other chest exercises, like db flies? Or just use whatever plane that lets me get fullest extension?
Thanks for any help y’all can give me.
