    I believe the strength coach at Maryland has his guys bench thumbless and some of his guys can do 500+, I personally think this is fucking stupid due to the thought that simple thumb placement can have a huge effect on pressing numbers and even if it does 10 more pounds doesn't out weigh accidents like that video.

    I use suicide grip on inclines and overhead presses now. I've always given people shit, but on these lifts it's so much more comfortable for me.

    Benching thumbless activates the triceps more.
