    Provided your elbow and upper arm stays fixed on the pad, is it still possible to subconsciously cheat, like is there a way for something else to take over?

    I understand you can just disregard the eccentric and bounce out of the bottom and stuff to cheat but that’s not what I’m referring to.

    I just always “feel” my back off set much better, which I understand feel isn’t the end all be all to an effective exercise, and possibly could be from accumulated pump, but I just was wondering if I’m using too much load and compensating somehow.
