    They are awesome, but, I have just learned something new with the alternating. Sometimes it's hard to think outside of the box, I s'pose.

  5. How you close grip 285 I will never know. My body doesn't work like that. Close grip is like 40% of max for reps. You're not human.

    Mine is the same, which is why I only do either high or low.

  10. I actually feel stronger with a close grip then wide. The wider my grip is the weaker I feel especially in the shoulder region hence why I bench with my hands just inside the bar rings on regular bench. The numbers are actually not far off from each other.

  11. You're just a weirdo with big arms and a small chest then

  13. No not small, I have had similar experiences, I am very proficient at close grip bench and not so much on regular. I can lift more with bench but the difference is much less than I would have thought it should be.

  14. I have a stupid huge chest though, way over powers my tris, so to me it's not huge... If are you benching narrow just as well as wide it means your tris are very strong. I wasn't trying to insult you but just making an observation. I bet if you hit your pecs a little more and got used to a wider grip, you would see bench numbers skyrocket in several months. Either way just keep doing what you do man.

  15. Might be do to shoulder injuries also...the wider you go the more the shoulders seem to get involved. I do find as I have focused more on keeping the chest more involved I can lessen the shoulder strain. I am going very wide on the smith with lighter weight to try and deal with this issue.

  16. I stay away from the wider grip mostly for comfort and safety sake. I seem to always be dealing with some type of shoulder pain despite tweaks in form when going wider on barbell. Dumbbells are fine but bb is a pain in the titts.

  23. I do not use an open grip but love the straight up and down motion is is like a stronger version of a skull crusher when you do them.

  24. Nothing wrong with close grip at all. I say work with what suits ya best.

    I like a medium grip (ring finger on the ring for a guy my size) and keep the elbow tucked well to focus on the chest and keep too much off the shoulders. I too learned from issues early on.

    Yah I see he uses both grips, seriously though the open grip has killed people.

  29. I use open grip when I bench.

    yup, me too
    in fact, use this grip on about every single thing I do - even reverse-curls most of the time

    that's kind of a dumb statement to make
    just because you cannot/do not do it, does not make it stupid for someone else who can

    ...aaand? so what?
    I can show you retarded car accidents too, where it was OPERATOR error most often due to lack of paying attention..
    ppl have been known to do the most goofy things, sometimes
    it still does not make it "unsafe" for those who are versed in it, aware of what they are doing, and proficient with such grip

    would I teach/advise this grip to one of my trainees? of course not, that would not be a good course to go..
    but I tell you what: if you were ever to walk by me while I am training and say something about my grip being "stupid", there would be no hesitation in my coming unglued on you
