    This week I really worked on my chest up and thight upper back. Been doing the low bar stretch everyday but still can't seem to tuck my elbows in, think that just takes time.

    The stretch takes time. Make sure you film yourself doing it to confirm you are not cheating any of the positions (wrists straight, elbows down and in). Many people push themselves too deep into it and lose the proper stretch position.

    Upper back rounding is better today, though you do tend to arch your chest up a bit on the way up. Also more lean at the hips to start each rep.

    Thank you, will do that.

    Do you mean I have to push my hips more back during the beginning of the rep or more lean overall?

    The lean and hips back go together, but focus on the lean as a cue.
