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

    hey when doing dynamic bench do you guys use all three grips or just your benchign grip?


    normally i try to use all three grips, for 3 sets each, but some times if my elbow or shoulder is bothering me ill just stick to my normal bench grip


    would there be anything wrong if i just ued this one grip or is it key to use all three different grips?

    Play around with it and see what works for you.

    I don't think 3 grips is necessary
    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

    I'd say stick to all 3 grips. It helps you activate different muscle fibers and gives you a stronger all-around bench press.

    The only reason I switch grips is because im adjusting to a wider and wider grip. I want to be benching ring fingers on ring, but my tri's account for too much of the lift right now. So when im under 75% of my 1RM I bench ring fingers on ring.. above that I have to move in to pinkys on the rings.

    I was taught by some pretty knowledgable guys to switch grips when doing DE bench stuff, play around with different things.
