The guys on the videos touch the chest, but if the elbow is observer many of them bent arm only 90 degree.
It doesnt matter. You must touch the chest.
This is a message to all NEWBIES and UNINFORMED people who might be reading this thread: DO NOT LISTEN TO reyinqu. HIS ADVICE IS BS.
Reyinqu: please do some reading before posting. These sort of questions have been answered before. Your arguments for not doing the bench press properly are silly and simply excuses. Given the information that you do not deadlift but you do good mornings with 245 lbs for 8 reps, I think you are either a troll or an idiot.
