Ok I figured out why I might be hindered in my progress on my shoulders... My left shoulder is double jointed so when I lock out, sometimes my left shoulder pops out... It doesn't hurt, but I can't bring my arm back down correctly, I have to drop the weight. Also my bench seems a bit crooked... Any way to fix it?
Posted in the T Misc too
edit: shoulder presses are the worst

-comfortable grip for what you want, wide grip or narrow depending on what type of benching you are attempting
-shoulders blade tucked in
-keep shoulders tight on bench
-stick your chest out and make enough little arch on middle back (not too much if you want bodybuilding technique, powerlifters have more arch for power) so a bit of your - middle back is off the bench but keep your upper back and butt to the bench.
-elbows tucked in a little when going down on the lift
-bring bar down to lower chest on flat benching or upper chest on inclines
^This way your shoulders won't move and upper back will be driven into the bench and your chest will be doing most of the work on benching.
