I know there is a lot technique invovled inthis, but I was curious about somehting.

when you do the normal grip, do you make a backwards C shape from your lower chest...well, more like belly line??

Thanks

I touch the bar low on my upper abs. You gotta be able to get a good arch to do this. The bar is then pressed in a straight line. You also have to be able to tuck your elbows pretty hard.

This freind of mine holds several state bench records in several classes. This is exactly how he told me to bench for weight/strength.

He also said it's much more forgiving on the shoulders. Also said to squeeze your lats when you lower the weight then use them to aid in pressing the weight up.

When you are going for a big bench the lats are heavily involved. Many people think it's just the pecs that move the weight. You need to be big and strong in the triceps, lats, upper back, and rear delts.
