hmmmm..... I guess about half way up. what typically happens is that I'll do 3-4 sets of 5, then on the following set i'll do anywhere from 1-3 and then in the middle of a rep I'll lose power, probably about half way up. the movements are all pretty quick and smooth. due to my age, and the fact that I've had a few minor excersize related joint pain issues - thumbs from boxing, ankles from running, and shoulders from lifting and swimming, I want to be carefull not to destroy my rotator cuffs. by a lot of considerations, I am not doing badly with the press, but I have set myself a goal to improve my bench and I hate to throw away a goal. once I hit the goal, I'll go back to once a week lifting weights, for sure. or I might to once a week heavy weights at 5X5 and once a week 1X100, which I ma toying with.
