    Its called suicide grip for a reason. I don't understand why people bench that way. A guy at my last gym dropped 225 on himself doing cg presses with the same grip..

    I dont get it....why do people grip that way to being with? Any "advantage" or comfort?

    When I first bench I would leave my thumb parallel at the bottom of the bar...took me a while to get over it...but now I grip it right.

    Just out of curiosity, how bad do you guys think he injured himself? I'm guessing quite a few broken ribs and maybe a collapsed lung.

    it depends on where it hit him. there's a chance that he escaped it without much injury. i imagine it would do the most damage if it landed on his neck or collar bone area; it looked like it hit him in the chest which might have absorbed most of it, maybe fracturing a rib or two.

    Lots of lifters use a thumbless grip and are fine. I know V. Dizenzo benched 800 like that. It has more to do with how you hold the bar (squeezing it, bar position in your hand). I recommend that most people use a thumbed grip, but to say that anyone who uses a thumbless grip is a moron is infact a moronic statement.

    That being said, I used to bench thumbless and switched a few years ago, now I can't imagine going back.

    youd have to agree thats theres no advantages to it. i can see how you could argue that dizenzo couldnt bench 800 with the change in the grip since thats probably what hes been using his whole life.
