In brief: Midbreastbone
Remember, the secret to chest compressions is hard and fast.
At least 100 compressions a minute, and depress the sternum 2-3 inches. Lean over the body for best results and use your body weight, not your arms (they tire quickly).

Feel where your stomach meets your breast bone, go up towards your head on the breast bone one fist size and that's where you press.
