🔥 GRIP WIDTH & BENCH ANGLE IMPACT TRICEPS ACTIVATION
🚨 This is the last lesson in this week’s The Muscle PhD Academy. If you recall from earlier lessons, I said compound pressing movements are best to target the inner and outer heads of the triceps. However, you can also use various bench angles and grip widths to fully engage the triceps.
✅If you use a close grip on a flat press, you will not only increase triceps activation, but you will also increase upper chest activation.
On the other hand, if you use a standard or decline pressing movement, you can also increase triceps engagement through a broader range of motion. Make sure you are using a close or moderate (shoulder width) grip when performing these movements.
💥Make sure you are using variety in your training!
