Slide your rear delts towards your hips! This is a great cue to help with that upper back tightness on the Bench. This is often the area most lifters are forgetting to lock down. The missing piece of the puzzle.

Its not enough to get into a good intial set up and have good leg drive. You could be pushing back on the bench hard and bending the bar hard but unless you get this concept down you will never have full control and activation of your entire back.

This is one of those concepts that can be gamechanging to your technique. It can help correct elbow flare and keep you in a much better initial pressing position. 3 things that are critical for that press up
