how should the bar go down in bench press?? in a straight line?? or in oblique line to the area of lower chest-upper abs???
whats the difference???
and another question- i wanna start doing some overhead squat to help me maintain my arch in the back squat- my question is: do i need to push the bar away from me-backward in the overhead squat???
you should take it with your arms perpendicular to the floor, straight out that is
then lower it controllably to just below your nipples, usually a straight line from that.
when I bench, sometimes when I lower the bar I imagine a bubble over my upper chest and the bar moving down toward the lower chest in a arc-line motion. I started doing then when I changed my bench style with tucked elbows and arched back.
'In order to alter the inertial mass of weights, you must become one with them, like a machine, the totality of your motion is as one'
Some coaches advocate a J-line method of pressing.
shoot, i just lower the bar and raise it in the same line.

well, im asking because i was told by some1 who saw me benching in straight line that benching like this put more weight and pressure on the shoulders instead of the chest in oblique line...
