Any tips for doing paused bench?
I've recently started with paused benching and I was wondering if you experienced types had any tips on doing them.
I do them pretty much like my touch and go bench, except stopping on my chest of course. However, I notice TnG I lower faster and seem to get a much better burst off the bottom. Paused, it definitly seems to be slower going down, and sometimes there is no burst at all to press. It just grinds upward gruesomely.
Hazzard, for example once said something about coiling like a spring, touching gently, then release the spring to press, but my reps never seem to work out like that. So, there must be more to it.
Maybe that's just the nature of the beast or I simply need to practice a lot more, but thought I'd ask about that, and also see if there was anything else I should know. Thanks!
