  • presses

    in the dc programming, he recommends to keep your ass off the bench for most presses where it is safe to do so (obviously not safe (or even possible i dont think) on incline or decline presses). how many of you do this and whats some feedback on it?

    I drop my ass off the bench for flat DB press and RGB on smith machine. That's it. I have no need to do so on decline or incline.

      The ass off the bench thing is mainly meant for close grips and reverse grip bench. It allows you to keep your chest out of it, and if doing them on the smith, lets you push the bar more towards your feet to really nail the triceps.

      It's not really meant to be done for chest presses, but I have seen videos of Cedric McMillan doing flat smith bench with his ass off the bench...looked like a pretty standard chest grip width too, so who knows...

      ...but I a almost certain it's a technique meant for tricep presses.
