🚨 BENCH PRESS GRIP👇
✅ The Bench Press is a full body, compound exercise. It works your chest, shoulders and triceps most snd it’s the most effective exercise to gain upper-body strength and muscle mass because it’s the upper-body exercise you’ll lift most weight on. The bigger your bench, the bigger your chest, we all know that.
To be able to do this though, it’s extremely important to make sure everything’s done right.
When it comes to gripping the bar, first of all you want to have your thumb around the bar (Avoiding the suicide grip) in order to not only increase the safety of the exercise, but also because it allows your wrists not to be excessively extended. This alone can be a cause of elbow & wrist injuries retaled to bench pressing, which simply make the exercise impossible to perform due to the discomfort. And we all know how damn important bench pressing is.
✅ Although I know there are countless people who’re gonna say:“never had a problem with the suicide grip Z bruh u mad?” I will continue teaching it in the strongest/safest way possible.
✅ Therefore: Holding the bar in the base of your palm, close to your wrists, with a thumbful grip, allowing all the joints to be stacked under the barbell. This will set up will generate the most amount of force.
