    Several months off the gym with double digit TT was my biggest setback. I知 actually making decent progress now as that big of a break from lifting gave me a chance to break some bad habit痴.
    Pushing my back/traps into the bench INSTEAD OF just pushing the bar away actually makes sense now.
    I知 back into the high 3痴.

    That’s the same spot I put mine but I’ve never felt it was a wide grip.

    There are many many wide benchers that are incredibly strong. But the best of the best are almost always fairly narrow.

    Are we comparing width or girth?

    I don’t think the bench would allow for much wider?

    Then im guessing you’re talking about a different ring on the bar? I’ve seen bars with multiple rings on it and some of them have been wider. But most bars I’ve just used have the one ring around shoulderish width

    The wider rings are for snatch/clean placement.

    I’ll take a look tomorrow. I go slightly wider on incline (like one finger wider) and I can barely fit when I rack/unrack.

    I don't think you guys are talking about the same rings.

    S30 your bar, how many rings are there in the knurling on each side?

    This is why they aren’t allowed in competition. All because someone was to lazy to apply markings.

    Measure it. It’s possible it’s an Olympic lifting bar with one wide set of markings and not a powerlifting bar.

    It has a long knurl, that ring, then more knurl. I played with grip spacing last night, where I'm at seems to be the best width for power. Definitely wider than shoulder width.

    How do you all grip? I have always done open grip with thumbs behind the bar. I find it is easiest on my wrists. I honestly dont know what is recommended but Im strongest this way and use that grip for nearly everything (including pulls)

    Closed grip here, i can just picture the bar slipping out of my hands and landing on me.
