my opinion is it's a more advanced technique... I think you would be better off focusing on the full range of motion with a weight you can control, and going slow on the descent.

that's what I do anyways and worked for me so far! my 180 x 4 bench isn't exactly impressive, but it was 155 x 4 back in november so I'm making solid gains
