    Bench Press Grip

    What grip do you use. I used to just get down and lift but I have recently revamped my form and I am now using the bulldog grip which has made things way more easier. What grip do you use?

    I almost lost my hand earlier this year due to an unrelated incident. Since then I have been having problems with.. basically anything that requres the use of my right hand.A fellow gym member decided to teach me how to utilize my strength better by teaching me the grip. It was a bit annoying at first but you get used to it. There is a good website that explains it, I can't post direct links but you can find it on Stronglifts if you Google it.

    I have never heard of the bulldog grip, but it sounds like it is working for you. I guess I am somewhat fortunate having not had to alter my standard grip for any injury or anything like that.
