Sorry I do not know how to embed the videos :(. Anyway, here is a video of Travis that shows the proper way of doing them:

And here is another video with Dave Tate explaining it:

It's my understanding that you want to bring the bar down so it hovers over your clavical and then dip it back towards your chin? I'm sure one of the more experienced guys with correct me if I'm wrong. I know they are very difficult to do properly and a lot of guys that claim to be JM a lot aren't doing them correctly. However, Travis doing 405X3 on JM, now that's impressive :D

Where do you put your hands? It looks like most of them do about a thumb length from the smooth.

Depends on how big you are. I can't do them effectively any longer with my index on the smooth, but that is where I started

Here is the video of JM explaining it himself. As you can see if done the original way it's pretty tough to use huge weight. That being said I do them much like Travis and feel great benefit.

I was actually just watching the Tate JM Press video on youtube earlier then saw this.One thing I tripped-out on was how much bigger Matt Smith has gotten since then-damn I'm jealous!
