    Hey Joe. curious what your thought are doing benching/pressing movements with a neutral grip. i have seen some hammer strength flat presses with the neutral grip option but ive honestly never tried it because i feel like it likings the lengthening of the pecs and more so involves triceps. However with end range of motion or the contraction of the pecs i do prefer a neutral grip with any crossover or fly motion. Would love to hear your opinion on that, and with your knowledge in biomechanics what wrist position and elbow path is best for chest training. thank you!!

    That made good sense man. I was sitting in my office flaring my elbows all over and supinating my hands haha. I sorta do all pulling movements in neutral grip, and pressing movements pronated right now. I will play around with some machines that allow neutral grip pressing and see how it feels. Would you recommend neutral grip pressing dumbbells for chest at all or no?
