I'm assuming the form for Flat DB Press is the same as a regular Bench Press, right? i.e. lower back arch, feet behind the knees etc. Are there any differences I should be aware of?
And as a bonus if anyone has any really good articles or videos about Bench Press form on-hand, that'd be nice. Or personal advice.
One difference to be aware of is you can go deeper with DBs. Which will hit your delts more.
I went to Rhodestown and all I got was this high cholesterol
5'6", 145 lbs.
I mean, I get the basics of it. As far as developing an arch in my back goes, should I just throw a towel down there until I get used to enough to go without?
Scooter - I don't believe that DB's get the delts as much as BB at all. I tried a few sets of bb after switchin to solely DB for a while and i felt it big time in my delts.
Anyway, now I do DB and BB mixed.
DGRO - I don't arch at all using DB's but I arch when using the BB. I do go heavy ish on DB's but prefer to go all out on BB instead and arch to push a little more weight.
If you look at this youtube video of Ronnie Coleman you can see he isnt archin at all.
