bench press question
Posted by Linda Hughes on August 24, 2016, 7:41 am
Due to an injury to my shoulder 9 yrs ago, I can not benchpress with a wide grip. I do just fine if I can bring my grip in with hands shoulder width apart. Lifting the bar, my hands are above my head, and I bring it down to chest at underwire. I have read the rule book and it says grip can not exceed 81 cm, but doesn't say anything about the minimum. I am wondering if this will be a reason that I would get disqualified at a meet. Thanks in advance for your input.
