Poverty bencher here with 1RM 105kg
Have always felt better/stronger with a narrower grip (thumbs length from the smooth) vs wider (pinkies on the rings).
While I’ve been making gains on my 2 fingers in from the rings grip anytime I do a rep with my “close” grip it feels tighter and moves better.
I can post some vids for comparison but you can see the 2fingers from the rings vid on my log
I half suspect the answer is just get stronger but I’d like to know what to put my focus/energy into.
Is wider better and should I try to go wider? How?
Is it ok to have a close grip as my main/competition bench? Will wide (relatively) grip bench be good assistance than?
