The Board Idea

The board press...
The idea behind it is to simulate a higher touch point of the body while absorbing the force through the board as though it is the body. A common misunderstanding is that some tend to 'slam' the bar into the board as hard as possible. This in a way defeats the purpose as they get loose through the upper back, which in turn leads to possible shoulder injury.
