    Possible improper form on bench press


    So when ive been benching ive noticed that it feels like im working out my shoulders and biceps a lot more than my chest. Since bench is a chest exercise can someone let me know if my form is incorrect? Becase ive noticed small gains in my pecs compared to my arms and shoulders.

    bench is a full body exercise! form might be off, but benching works the entire body

    Yep I have been feeling the same recently so I switched from barbell to dunbells and I can feel the pump a hole lot more especially towards the centre of my chest.

    Every now and then il throw the bench in there but I prefer the dunbells now.
