The followings is from an article on floor presses that appears as a link in The Glossary. Floor Press and its Applications By Aaron DiPrima For EliteFTS Now, I am the complete opposite of this guy. I struggle with the initial lift off of my chest (I'm slow as shit lifting around 80% 1RM) and once I get to just before the halfway point, I pick up speed and I lock out fast. This guy was able to fix his problem with the floor press. Is there some variation of the bench press that I could do that will help me rectify my problem? Another thing. I noticed that when sparring (muay thai) if I fire my jab from more of a classic boxing stance with my left hand near my jaw line or cheek area, it lands... meh. But if I float my jab out a little and fire it from half way out, I seem to get a MUCH better snap. Anything think this is from a similar muscular deficiency as I mentioned above?
