If you're wrapping the bands around your back for DB plus band press, do the bands go up along your armpit?

Frogbyte,

I usually stand on the band so that on the outside of my shoulder for a kettlebell press.

Play with it and see what works for you.

Sorry I meant for bench press. I tried it with the band up next to my armpit, and then with the band around the outside of my upper arm / shoulder. Both felt a bit awkward but I think I preferred the feel of outside the shoulder. But is one more effective than the other? Next to the armpit felt like it brought in the lateral deltoid and/or external rotators as stabilizers, which kind of makes me nervous since those are smaller muscle groups and might be an injury risk.
