Thoughts on Close-Grip Bench Press?


#1

i am trying to build up my tricep strength, do you think i will get good results with this exercise?


#2

Yes

/thread.


#4

99% /thread. But I'd be remiss not to mention weighted dips. Not the 35 lb. on a dip belt kind but the kind that makes your eyes bleed.


#5
 Yeah, try and push the bar in a straight line, and not over the face, you really will feel it in your triceps that way throughout the whole movement.

#6

Good point.

Now /thread

Personally, I've never had much luck with carry over to my comp grip or triceps strength. I've had better luck with close grip floor presses, band work, and 3 board presses for triceps. But give it a try, it might just be awsome for you.

JM press is something to consider

Just give up ink.

3 board ftw.
