hi, you use always the comp.grip on max effort exercises , right ?

i think it make sense ... the most benchers tell : "use a closer grip on all me-work...and comp.grip only at competition " but with this i got stronger on my medium-grip bench but weaker on my wider grip , thats why i use the wider grip more often now...and it works better.

i bench RAW ... what do you think about it ?

I use competition grip with all my presses.

By the way, I'm not Travis, but I did stay at a Holiday Express last night.

haha I LOL'd

To the OP, what I do is do about half my work sets with a semi close grip, and then the rest with comp grip. I feel that close grip does very well for increasing your tricep strength, but I prefer to use comp grip as Vincent does. Most everyone at Westside uses comp grip on ME work. On DE work, we'll switch grips around

closer grips i use on heavy tricepswork like close grip bench, high boardpresses with medium grip and so on... i think so its all in my training ..
