In what scenarios would you pick one over the other as a supplemental lift for raw benching (if you could only use one), and why?

Interesting.
I noticed the same when I did them for a time. I always felt like my wrists were my weakest link in that exercise - even wrapping them.

There are several variations that people "call" the JM press. I used a cambered bar with the technique Blakely described himself on video. Haven't done them forever since I almost never have a spotter anymore (one I trust, anyway).

I actually use jm presses with lighter weight and super high reps..if Iím really after size for whatever reason I will do them in the smith machine...itís the only thing that piece of shit is good for
