Bull,

That’s a nice trick !

I will stick with the dumbells for a while, since they do seem to be much better for my shoulders and are really hitting the pecs well.

I will analyse the movement to see if I can improve my form in the bench press.

One thing that could make the difference is that I can go deeper ie better stretch with the dumbells and don’t tend to raise my shoulders off the bench at the top of my movement.
