    There's nothing wrong with benching with a wide grip, but you also need to have a big arch and lower the bar in the proper groove.

    No, I meant groove. There is a specific groove that is unique to each person based upon their biomechanics.

    Articles about a bench groove? It's something that you have to find by looking at video or having a PL coach look at your technique. There are many factors including arch, arm length, ROM, grip width, etc.

    it probably wont help that what rodja was talking about was form a powerlifting perspective and has little if nothing to do with bodybuilding.
    you can call me "ozzie" for short.
