Bench Press Grip in Relation to Rows


#1

Do you use exactly the same grip width for your bench press as for bb row ? or do you use another grip width for both exercises


#2

I just go by what feels comfortable for that particular movement.


#3

various grips for both.


#4

My row grip seems to be a little bit closer than my bench grip. Do what's comfortable as Goodfellow does.


#5

BB rows for lats, or for upper back?


#6

for lats amd middle back


#7

It varies, but generally my row grip is slightly closer than my bench. Thought I'd mention I'm tall with long arms.


#8

My row grip is whole hand on the edge of knurling which is pretty much as close as I can get reasonably which imo should be the aim for lats, if I was doing for upper back/rear delts it would probably be wider. My bench grip is about a hand further out then my row but not too extreme.
