    Alternative to close grip bench press?

    Everytime I do these for my tri's, it completely screws up my wrists. I have no idea why, but when I'm finished my wrists click whenever I move them. I don't have this problem with any other workout, so what would be the best alternative?
    Thanks,
    para

    bump. anatomically, they should be less stressful on your wrists than most any other heavy tricep movement because since your forearms (ideally) remain perpendicular to the floor throughout, less stabilization is required from the wrists than if you're doing things such as jm or california presses... or even skullcrushers. that's only if your form is correct though.

    good to hear . just push your upper arms somewhat snugly to your sides, and keep your forearms pointing straight up the entire time (as much as possible, at least). this should result in you lowering to and pressing from your upper abs or somewhere thereabout.

    best of luck to you.

    I prefer using the outside yes , less stress on the wrists , too close of a grip on regular or reverse grip presses will prolly result in wristwrist pain

    Use an EZ bar for CGBP if it hurts your wrists, and widening your grip on the BB doesn't seem to help.
