    when doing a bench press and lifting the weight off the rack, waht msucle is used?

    yesterday i was doing incline / flat / decline benchpress. i would feel a twinge when lifting the weights off the rack( upper right shoulder). i felt it a lot when i was starting each set of the flat bench especially. i dont feel it at all during the rest of the reps, just when i first lift the weight off the rack. anyone know exactly which muscle is used? i figure i need to stretch it more ;p

    i dont think so, maybe because i have short arms =p i have to extend my back a lot more to de-rack the weight. normally i dont feel the twinge though. but like amusclehead said... i'll prolly just ask someone to help me on it.
    thanks

    You may work them to diferent degrees , more front delt and less lat involvement, for instance , but the muscles used are the same ........
