With the popularity of classic lifting ever increasing many world class competitors are getting out of the gear and lifting raw. For many years training tips were based on the geared lifts and what makes your lifts stronger in gear. Now training tips are being shared for the classic lifter. Again I have made some general mistakes and need to make corrections.
In the Bench Press I have always lifted with pointer finger on the rings. In a bench shirt this makes sense. You want to stretch the shirt so a wide grip is preferred. When classic lifting you want to improve the strength on your triceps and allow the lats to load up. A narrow grip is preferred. Back to the ol' drawing board.
Here is a video explaining exactly what I'm talking about.
