What positioning should I focus on during the bench press?

Focusing the Bench Press on the Chest Muscles

When performing a bench press, you should keep your rear deltoid muscles on the bench as much as possible. In other words spread the chest by keeping your shoulder blades pulled towards your spine and drop the shoulders in the direction of your waist. This will help to keep the focus on the chest throughout the movement.
