Hey, ive been wondering how my grip width should be. im 6'2 with quite long arms, and i dont want to flare my ellbows too much because of all the stress it puts on my shoulders. ive heard that my wrist and elbow should always be in line, so my forarm is 90Â° to the floor, but i kinda got the feeling that when i do this i would drop the bar really low (around my belly button).
i know i should drop it around my sternum/lower chest, but i think cuz of my long arms when i just hold my arms right now in a bench press position and try to make my hands in line with my sternum my elbows wouldnt be tucked at all.
atm i bench with my pointer fingers just a smitch outside the rings on the olympic bar, because i really dont want to go wider, but i feel when i go narrower i would drop the bar really low on my belly to keep my wrist in line with my elbow and 90Â° to the floor.
any thoughts and tips on how to find the perfect bench press grip width for a persons built?
