    Just squeeze your pecs at the top - you don't have to touch the dbs together though. When I do DB presses they come in a little bit at the top when I squeeze but not far enough in that they touch.

    I find my obliques grow enough doing squats/deadlifts/any exercise that works your core. Any direct work and they tend to get too bulky and make you lose your V - taper.

    What kind of aching? Like your bones and joints?

    You might want to try taking a week off and see how you feel when you come back. When was the last time you took a week off lifting?

    Think of your hands as "hooks" and pull the weight down with that mental image. For whatever reason that helps me focus on pulling with my back instead of my arms.

    don't take this the wrong way but if you're asking those questions you don't need a bench shirt.

    try some one-legged leg presses if you really want to feel your quads working.

    Shoulder width apart for your feet should be fine to answer your first question by the way.

    What do you weigh?
    A 130 pound person at 7% might not have a 6 pack anyway.
    If you're upwards of 170 at 7% then you should be seing something or those readings are wrong.
