The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís 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?

    Dynamic Bench

    For you all who do these do you use three different grips or do you just use the same one all the way throughout?

    cause i use close, medium and wide, i was thinking of just doing all 9 sets with my normal grip because thats the way i bench also when i do close grip or medium grip very fast like that it puts strain on my elbows and a bad strain on my pec. But when i take my normal grip (which is just inside my wide grip) i feel no bad stress and my bar speed is great and i feel i can get the most out of doing all the sets this way.


    what do you do? and what do yall think I should do about my problem?

    adam your lifts might be good but your math skills suck.
    403+303+503= 1209
    not 1203

    i get a little pain from doing close and wide also- i do 5 normal 1 of each others.

    I think you guys might have to concentrate on tucking in your elbows (not flaring them). Back when I did close grips, I flared my elbows and didn't keep them by my side and I could definitely feel the strain.

    so would yall reccomend staying and using all three grips or just staying with one wide grip and doing all 9 sets with the grip you bench press with?

    Depends how I feel that day. Sometimes I use 1 grip, 2 grips, or 3 grips. I just go with the flow.

    JTyrell710, a total is the sum of your lifts during one competition, not the sum of your best lifts.

    Dynamic Benching is speed benching a la Westside training.

    I prefer to use one grip myself. It just feels more natural that way. I also scale the weight up in sets, rather than leave it static.

    I do 3 grips: 2 wide, 4 normal, 2 close grip.

    The wide grips feel by far the worst for me when I do dynamic bench. It hurts my shoulders a little bit. The close grips feel much better..
