Tim is definitely the one who would know. I have only seen people use it twice and both times it was with a wide grip. A training buddy of mine and I were talking about it. From what Tim says, it sounds like he and others use it to mimic the close grip bench. For example, watching in the mirror, pla...

Reverse grip bench press

I thought I asked this question, but I don't know where I put it. Sorry if I am redundant. What is the difference using a reverse grip for the bench press. Is it only advisable for extreme wide grip to reduce strain on the wrist?

I think it also depends on how you are training. If you are doing push/pulls, it is fine to work out more. If I hammer one body part, I rest it for a week. It also depends on you and what your body responds to. Just be careful not to overtrain. For example, my chest workout is: Flat/incline/decline ...

I a believer that, depending on what your goals are, you need to hit each muscle with at least two exercises. That may not be true for everybody, but it seems to work for me. For example a full body workout is a waste of time for me. I don't get anything out of it, but I know guys who get good resul...

Gakic

Anybody try it yet? It didn't seem to do much for me. If you do, go with the pills. The powder tastes like bile to me - and I am not exaggerating. My wife smelled it and almost heaved.

gloves

I have a pair of Nikes that go past the first knuckle on the index and middle finger only. My Harbingers don'. I need to go on a rant here, please forgive me. Why wouldn't you use gloves? Only sissies use them? Newbies? Because the old guys don't? As a professional safety guy that is the same thing ...
