what grip for bench press?

  1. what grip for bench press?


    so im doing a 5x5 routine, but i was just thinking that ive basically been doing a wide grip for bench press for the past year or so.
    the question is, what grip do u guys think hits more muscle groups (more of a compound move): wide, medium or close grip? im thinkin that a medium grip would be best, but would like ur opinions.

  2. i feel like if i go too wide it hits the outter pecs a lot...i'm only 5'8 and i have pretty short arms but i think a touch wider than shoulder width is a pretty good bet
