I was told by my PT that when benching (bar or bells), I shouldn't bring my elbows behind my back. The proper form is to lower my arms so that my bent elbows line up with my back, and then explode upward.

Any comments on that?

I see a lot of people bouncing the bar off their chest or, ever so slightly lower the bar and call that a rep.
