From NASA's rulebook:

Causes for Disqualification of a Bench Press

4. Heaving or bouncing the bar off the chest.
5. Allowing the bar to sink into the chest after receiving the Chief Referee's signal.

Seems maybe there is a fine line between those two rules where it could be sunk into the chest and still be a good lift? I guess it depends on the definition of "heaving".
