Just wanted to know from fellow posters if they include this exercise into their program… I’m referring to the reverse grip bench press for triceps work.
Anybody getting good results from it? I found it really torches my tris and chest (to some degree)as well as my anterior delts.
Now my question is: Why is my reverse grip bench (235 lbs) better than my normal bench press (225 ?)
Hope to hear from other T-Nation posters on this. [/quote]
i’m using the reverse grip bench every second or third tricep workout. i include one press movement for my tris every workout and i alternate between dips, close grip, and reverse grip. i really like the reverse grip. i think it works the tris really well. that is pretty strange that you can reverse grip more than you can regular bench but everybody is built differently and your body may be better suited to reverse grip benching. how long have you been using the reverse grip? how far apart is your grip compared to your grip on your normal bench.
