With that said, one of my problems at my last meet was my tremors. The rear judge red lighted me because he said the bar sunk into my chest after pausing. I blame my tremors for that. Perhaps more or all puased benching would help me with that.
Its worth a try. Just so you know its just not my opinion, I have talked to JM Blakely a few times over email and he really advocates pause work also. He feels that it really brings up explosive work and recruits all muscle fibers. To me it just makes sense. If your judged on it then it makes sense to practice it. Throw in a lockout exercise and your covered.
