Going wide on certain lifts

  1. Going wide on certain lifts

    I've started to incorporate a wide grip on most of my compound lifts (Bench, Rows, Shoulder Press, etc.).

    I have been doing them where my index finger is on the 'notches' towards the ends of the bar.

    What is the standard placement for a wide grip?

  2. Well, this is by no means "standard", but for wide grip pressing movments, I go about as wide as I can without sacrificing grip strength. Once I get to the point where my grip slips even the slightest on the last rep, I know that is too wide. I go maybe a half inch past the notches or so...maybe more.

  3. Since everybodys built differently, I think it's more about going by 'feel'. I do whats comfortable.
