Transmutation Week 1, Day 1
I've been doing a lot of reading regarding bench grip width and, coincidentally, Wendler wrote a bench article that touched upon pros/cons of width. I have long arms for my frame (~5'10" with a 6'2" reach), so I naturally assumed a wider grip and a shorter ROM would be in my best interest. However, according to Wendler, this is not ideal for someone who struggles at the bottom, which I do. I moved my grip from the legal maximum to having my ring finger on the rings. I felt tighter and more stable even with a bad handoff and I hit a solid PR. My triceps were fried afterwards and I was weaker on incline, but not a big deal.
