Hello Jim, I’ve got a question for you.
First of all I’m still making progress in other lifts but I feel like I stuck at bench press. I’m thinking about switching from regular bench press to close grip just for strengthen my triceps. Also I feel more lat activation in close grip at the bottom.

A close grip bench is a bench press, despite what people have been teaching you. There is a guy who competes in PL, and when he writes about his meets he writes “close grip bench” for his summary and his excuses. It is a running joke with a lot of PL. No one qualifies their competition lifts like that.
Its a bench press. Get bigger, get stronger.
