Just found out that my fed WNPF, has deemed false grip in the bench illegal. This is on the heels of my meet which is coming up on June 8. Everything I do is basically with a thumbless grip, Bench, chins, OH Press and Squat are all done with a false grip…even when I DL dbl overhand its with a hook grip.
I dont know if it is bro science or not as I do not have scientific data to back it up but my shoulders and wrist feel more comfortable and I dont have any pain. When I was benching full grip a few years ago I had issues with the bar rolling back on to my fingers causing stress on my wrists and not being able to push through the wrists.
I did pin presses today, and went half false and half full grip with my sets…I dont fucking like full grip…so suffice to say Im concerned.
Any tips or info would be appreciated.
