If you think about exercises in certain ways it can make them easier to perform or help hammer in a few subtle details. For any pulling exercise, one you might have heard is to initiate and think of the pull through your elbow to retract your scapula.
Since pulling through the elbows is helpful, I wondered if the opposite is true. I now lock out and press through the elbows for pressing exercises. Additionally, a second point to concentrate on is the wrists.
