Hi guys, I asked that question in another thread but it got lost. So here is a dedicated thread: I have a question about floor presses: I tried them today for the very first time and I wonder if I should relax when the elbows touch the floor or if I should keep everything tight. I tried both, 1) relaxing lats, chest and shoulders. Just resting the weight on my forearms, then contracting everything and press out. Feels like a box squat technique - release and contract... I can stabilize two plates without feeling uncomfortable, but I wonder if this is healthy when using more weight. It felt a little awkward being relaxed and feel the weight pushing down on my forearm bones. and 2) going down, touch the ground slightly with elbows, keep everything tight and press out (of course, that feels easier than 1)) I am grateful for any input.
