Close Grip, Wide Grip: 9/6/18

We will be cycling through 3 variations of the bench press on Thursday.  Narrow Grip, Wide Grip and Regular Grip.

Narrow Grip-One thumbs distance more narrow than your regular grip. This movement focuses on all three heads of the tricep. All three heads are called upon for maximal recruitment during the close-grip version of the bench; few moves will overload this trio of muscles better.

Wide Grip- One thumbs length WIDER than your normal grip. This exercise puts most of its focus solely on working the pecs.
