    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)

    It’s a bird… It’s a plane… nope, it’s me soarin’ past everybody.

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

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