Set up the bench in a squat rack so it falls into a high notch-hold that allows only the last 10cm of the bench-pressing movement. The weight should be 20-30% more than your 1RM for a full bench press. Explosively push the bar until your arms are locked. Hold for a moment and return it with control.
