Seth Feroce is back with some tips and tricks for chest workouts! To begin, it is important to understand what the function of the chest muscles are in the first place.
A wider grip works more of the outside of the chest, and having a more narrow grip works more of the inside of your chest. Now we are going over hand placement! For instance, pushing with the outside of your palms, instead of using a conventional grip, you will feel it working the chest in a different way. We are all familiar with their ability to push our arms away from our body as in a bench press. That said, given the orientation of the fibers of the chest, it is actually more important for the pecs to pull your arm across your chest into what is called horizontal adduction.
Watch the above video, and try out some of these hand placements in your next workout!
