For anyone who doesn't have to use a barbell to bench (ie powerlifters), I would recommend switching to dumbbells, at least some of the time.
That switch saved me a lot of elbow trouble and if you're having shoulder problems definitely give it a go.

If you need any help with that Lyle posted a video on the correct setup on dumbbell bench and how to dump the weights recently on the facebook page.
And make sure you're tucking your scapula in when benching BEATMEOUTTAME, no need for a ridiculous arch but a small one that places your shoulder joint under the path of the dumbbell will help prevent it getting as aggravated.

agreed, the best cue ive gotten for benching is to tuck my shoulders into my back pocket.... that frees up a TON of room in that shoulder joint

Thank you Lyle. This website is a game changer once you understand the mechanisms behind fat loss/muscle gain.

Spun my wheels for years prior to finding this site.
