I've read everywhere that excelent form is an absolute must. However, my bench press
(personal favorite) is a disaster. I feel I must have an imbalance as I always push more on my left side, leaving the barbell a little bit slanted and straighting it up at the end of the rep
The only way in wich I can keep the barbell straight is dropping the weight to 25 pounds x 2. I can get 10 reps with 45 pounds x 2 the slanted way. This happens with the incline and decline press as well.
I notice a bigger slant if I do triceps before pecs, but the bench is usually my first excercise. Should I drop the poundage and increase gradually while keeping an excellent form or should I try to counter-balance with specialized training on my right triceps and pec?
I don't cheat in any other way: I keep my back flat, I grasp at shoulder width, I keep the barbell at my nipples' level, and I even feel the 45 pounds quite light.
