Thanks. I let the bar sink in most of the way, and I press up when it gets really hard to compress down any more. I find it harder than working with boards. Then again, it depends how you work with boards. Basically, all of these are ok depending what you need to work on:

- touch-and-go
- pause-and-go
- sink-and-go

The reason I am sinking the bar at the moment is that I'm trying to improve driving the bar down to my chest in my bench shirt. So it makes sense for me...
