    so i borrow the encyclopedia from a friend and read this in the 'chest' section

    "this is the proper way to do narrow-grip bench presses: keeping the elbows out and away from the body at the bottom of the movement...allows a full contraction of the pectorals at the top, which helps to develop the inner part of the chest"

    :wtf:

    If you read Arnold's Bible for real advice..don't expect to get much :p

    I have it because it's a classic but it's a little outdated in some of its stuff.

    its a general focus at the top of the rep to contract the chest...which will focus more conentration in the middle/inner part of your chest.
