Sticky Thread Sticky: The Bench Form Thread

We see a lot of threads asking for bench form critiques on this forum. I feel like most of these threads are made because people don’t know how to critique their own form. They just don’t know what to look for. I’m hoping to narrow that gap with this thread. I’m not going to touch on everything,...

I can press behind the neck now

So after years of struggling with shoulder problems I now have the mobility to do (light) presses behind the neck. I do them Paul Carter style to the ears, not the base of the neck. Question is, can I program these as a main lift once a week or is that not advisable?

Are paused reps good for hypertrophy or is it better for techinque?

As of now, I using paused incline bench press as an accessory to my main lifts. I maintain a 2-3 second pause at the bottom and it makes something light like 90 lbs manageable for 10 or so reps (for reference, I can press 115 lbs for reps without a pause). If pausing makes something "light" a...

Incline bench angle & arch
