Question by jake a: How to keep the bar balanced and still when bench pressing?
I’m fairly new to benching and when I bench I have a tendency to sway from side to side a bit. It’s really hard for me to keep the bar balanced. I have the strength (I’m only benching the bar to start out), but I just can’t get the technique down.
Any tips or hints?

it depends on the bar. Make sure to lock in your shoulders, if you dont you will be wobbling. Keep ur core strong. (core is like ur abs region and a bit lower)
also on the bar, you should have a good grip too. This actually helped me bench an extra 15-20 pounds for my max rep. (currently 205)
