    Since this is a repost and it's about benching, I have a related question

    I think I am going to start with that bench routine Maine posted a while back. My question is, in relation to the smooth ring on the bar, where do you place your hands for close grip, wide grip, and regular grip. This is something I have never known and just guess on hand placement.

    The close grip in this video seemed way farther apart then I thought close grip was.

    :dunno:

    i always thought cg was where the gripping of the bar starts. medium is right inside the lining and wide outside the lining.

    the markings on the bar don't mean anything.

    they are there to give you markings for semetry and reference. they are NOT guides to where you should be placing your hands. Ie, the only reason the bar is marked is so once you figure out where you should be gripping it, you can easily find that spot again. (pinky on ring, index on ring, two inches to the left etc etc) also the markings make sure your grip is centered.

    Your hands should be placed only in relation to your body. You need to figure out where you should be placing your hands in relation to your personal body geometry and what you are trying to achieve.

    I've seen different 45lb bars with the markings/knurled sections in different areas.

    Some have a 4-5 in section of knurling in the center of the bar, too.

    anywhere from shoulder width to a little bit narrower is correct for cg.
