Sticky Thread Sticky: The Bench Form Thread

We see a lot of threads asking for bench form critiques on this forum. I feel like most of these threads are made because people don’t know how to critique their own form.

Whats the point of Calf Raises in Allpro's how is it helping compounds?

most of the exercises involve compound movements . I fail to see the point of calf raises . My goal is to optimize my full body workout days with just compound movements so that i hit majority of muscle groups to preserve them during my cut.
