Specific warm-up: Use a series of light sets, getting progressively heavier, to build up to your working weight.
Set-up: Find a spotter. Lie down on the decline bench with your shoulder blades retracted, your stomach and abs tight and your feet flat on the floor. Grip the bar with a shoulder-width, fully closed and tight grip.
Lift: Lower the bar in a straight line to your chest, keeping the elbows close to the body, until it just slightly touches the chest. Reverse the movement quickly while making sure the bar travels in a straight line back up.
Emphasis: Keep your shoulder blades together at all times and do not allow your shoulders to roll forward during the movement. Press the bar to your chest, NOT your face. Do not bend your wrists, there should be a straightline through your forearm up to your knuckles. Unrack the weight with straight arms.
