should you lower until arms parallel to floor or is there any advantage to going lower?

    You should lower the bar until it touches the upper most point of your chest, where it joins the collar bone. The delts are most heavily worked in the first 6 inches pressing from the upper chest. Therefore, a full ROM is critical.
