I would suggest you find a trainer at your local gym to be shown correct form, or find videos online showing the correct way to perform the bench. What I would not suggest is to come to an MMA forum to find this information.
My form is fine, I was purely interested in seeing if anyone could provide any info on exploiveness from the bench.

Honestly the 2nd guy is a little more legit I have heard pushups are good for hand-speed.

Throughout life there are bumps along the way some may be painful...others not...who gives a damn in the end you'll still die
