Whats the physical motion of bench pressing?

Most people assume it's straight up and down but actually the way to get the most out of the bench press and the actual way most people perform this exercise is taking it at a slight curve on the way down more towards the body, and pressing at a slight curve as you return the bar back up, curving it towards the rack, again this is a slight curve, not a huge one, the bench press just like any other exercise you need to master form before you start stacking on weight. If you were talking about anatomical motion of the bench press, then as you lower the bar in the movement, you are extending the upper arm at the shoulder joint while flexing the forearm at the elbow joint. While pressing the weight back up you are flexing the upper arm at the shoulder joint, and extending the forearm at the elbow joint
