    Or you could just use a seated dip machine and not have to worry about placing a 45lb weight on your lap with no available hands.

    When I do what I consider "close grip" my index fingers are where the knurling starts on the bar before it gets to the smooth part. It keeps the triceps in line, any closer and you're putting unncessary stress on your wrist.
