When the weight gets heavy, keeping your elbows tucked can be a challenge.
Here’s a simple bench press tip to prevent your elbows from flaring for healthier shoulders, and more raw pressing power off your chest!
Back tight — shoulder blades screwed down and pinched together.
SQUEEZE the bar — grip it in tight to the thumb/palm of your hand, not in the knuckles/fingers.
Keep your elbows pointed at each other as you lower the bar to your chest and press explosively!
