I was wondering what opinions of a reverse grip CGBP everyone here had? I saw a picture of it in one of those "muscle mags" and thought I'd ask what you guys think about this exercise...........
30MAY03 = 800 Total - Bench 230, Squat 245, Deadlift 325
22OCT04 = 960 Total - Bench 275, Squat 305, Deadlift 380
Most push-ups in one minute = 102 (BW:195lbs)

I occasionally do reverse grip bench, but I have never done it close grip. I tend to use the same grip witdth as my regular bench. I'm a big fan of this exercise. I never noticed any size gains from it, but it did seem to help in the strengthening of my triceps, which in turn led to a stronger bench.
just my thoughts...
Big? Not really. I'm 5'7" 196 lbs.
Strong? Like a bull!
