Yeah, that's pretty much exactly what you need. Makes the take out on the bench of a hell of a loot smoother!

I'm joking of course but you get my point, most people come in too early and rightly you have pointed out that a degree of understanding is crucial.
Exactly, there's a difference between hard and HARD when pressing and it's only when the bar starts suffering to gravity that they need to touch it.

Exactly.
