The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    REverse (supine grip) close grip bench press?

    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...........

    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!

    Personal Records:
    Bench - 440 (raw)
    Squat - 600 (belt & wraps)
    Deads- 585 (belt)

    personally it hurt my wrists to much, so i do not do them.

    if it does not hurt your wrists, keep doing them.
