  • Reverse Grip Bench Vids

    I checked in the video archive to no avail, so I was wondering if anyone has or has seen any good vids showing how to set up a reverse grip bench on a smith machine?

    I would also love to see this. My training partner and I are having trouble figuring it out.

      At one time that was a vid of Dante doing them himself but I couldn't find it. If you have a zero degree smith machine you can lay either way in it. If you have a 7 degree smith then lay so you are pushing away towards your feet. Need to have a wide grip, typically outside the rings, to really hit that long head and take the stress of your shoulders. Have fun!

          Awesome, that's the one I was thinking of too. Doesn't he talk about somewhere how to set up for it, and say something about having your ass hang off the end of the bench?
          You can kind of see when Dante does the pressing portion his butt comes down, and on the negative portion he lifts it up. There is a reason for this and I thought it was for shoulder health.

            Please keep in mind that the bar path is lower on these as well. It is hard to tell from the video, but the bar is touching the lower part of his chest, almost high abdominals.
