    Medium grip bench press vs Wide grip

    I was messing with incline bench press yesterday, and I noticed I'm alot stronger with medium grip than wide grip. I have small pecs (narrower shoulders) and large arms. So my triceps probably benefit more. Also I've been hearing that you can get better "leverage" with a closer grip, and it's...

    Side deltoids and trapezius with more of what you need and less of what you don't...

    Wide shoulders with a matching and balanced set of trapezius muscles is just what the doctor ordered. I like performing the wide grip barbell upright rows, as it really gives me a magnificent and simultaneous pump in both my side deltoids and trapezius muscles, however my left shoulder is not in...

    Are lifting straps for the weak?

    The direct answer is no they're not for the weak, unless you consider some of the world's strongest men weak! When you're lifting really heavy (relative to you) for repetitions, or you're holding a weight statically momentarily before moving it (such in a halting deadlift position with a...

    Cheap Chinese Barbell locking / lockjaw COLLARS

    After seeing the fancy prices local suppliers want for collars, I bought these off eBay for $10 / pair. This seems like an area where prices are wildly different depending on brand and store. Spring collars apparently lose their grip after a while, and screw collars mar the barbell sleeve...

    Deadlift Grip

    A couple month before Christmas I started to lift again and for once sticking to it. Anyway I had noticed my bicep felt dull and achy and after a look around on google it seems the deadlift is more than likely the issue. As most people the overhand grip works to a point and then people us the...

    Overhead Press, forearm clicking

    Hi All, Just switched from seated overhead press (slight incline), to standing again. I realised my grip was way too wide (on the gnurling), and have bought my grip into should width as per the various form guidelines on "proper form". Generally I feel stronger like this too with less shoulder...
