How does your grip width during the bench press affect which muscles you train?

Categories: Videos & podcasts

In this video, I dissect a new study on how your grip width affects which muscles you train with the bench press.
The common idea of ‘narrow grip for triceps, wide for pecs’ is not quite accurate. This study is particularly cool, because it explores grip width and elbow position separately and looks at upper/middle/lower pecs separately as well. Enjoy it!
