I’ve got a question regarding hand placement on the bench press. Should I be pulling the bar apart or squeezing my hands together when I press? I’ve always been under the impression that I should try to tear the bar apart when i lift, but someone on another post claimed the hands should be squeezed together. Who is right on this one?
I also have to add that i’m pysched because I tied my PR on flat bench today after 3 years of struggling. I’ve vowed to hit 250 in 2 weeks for the first time ever. Also PR’d on deads, barbell rows, and feel like I can squat a PR by a mile(darn Nike Shox have too much cushion, time for some chucks)
Anyway, i’ll aprpreciate any feedback you guys and gals can give me.
