    Neutral Grip Bench Press??

    Well it's like 4a.m. here an I have nothing better to do;except browse webpages.I came accross a certain online retailer (don't know if we are allowed to mention retailers names on here) that is selling a "MEGA-TRICEP BAR" that is basically a 7ft Tricep bar.Sure there are the small ones that are like 3ft wide; but If a prsn wrks out alone; there's no spotter to catch the bar.It doesn't say for Bench Press' specifically; but do ya'll think there would be any benefit to a neutral grip on Benches.I know from a competitive point "no" b/c it doesn't mimmic competiton;but for some one just seeking to increase strength; think it would help?

    Any benefit? It's just another way to press. I'd certainly toss it in my bag of tricks.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei
