    I used to use suicide grip and had a hard time transitioning to standard but I’ve seen some nasty accidents with some big weight so I made the change. Initially my bench took a little hit but went back up after getting used to it. I still use the suicide for close grip and even with lighter weight it’s still potentially dangerous but feels easier on my shoulders. As I’ve gotten older I’ve taken things into consideration and am a little more conservative. But to each his own.

    I only use it on warm up sets. It just feels more comfortable than wrapping the thumbs.

    I used suicide grip for yearsssss. Made the switch about a year ago to start wrapping my thumbs. When you're pushing heavy weight u can still dump the bar on your chest just as fast with a full grip. Your thumbs aren't gonna stop 500 pounds from falling.
    Steve gentili is a 600 pound presser and he just had this happen to him with a full grip. It can happen either way.

    Suicide grip makes it easier to get the bar on the thumb pad which is the strongest spot in your hand. But people don't realize u can still get it in that same spot while wrapping your thumb, u just have to rotate your hand after u grip the bar. Took me a while to get it down but def feels stronger with my thumb around the bar now. U can squeeze the bar much harder with thumbs wrapped.
