  • Wrists. Bench with straight wrists. Grip the bar low so your wrists can’t bend and hurt
  • Elbows. Tuck them 75° at the bottom, keep them directly under the bar from all angles
  • Forearms. Vertical to the floor, straight line from bar to wrist to elbow from all angles
  • Chest. Raise it to the ceiling, squeeze your shoulder-blades, arch your back to stay tight
  • Shoulders. Keep them back on the bench, drive yourself into the bench when you press
  • Feet. Flat on the floor, feet under knees, shoulder-width stance like when you Squat
  • Bar path. Diagonal line from mid-chest to shoulders, not vertical over chest or shoulders
  • Racking. Lock your elbows, move the bar over your shoulders first, get a lift off if you can.
