In this VIDEO, I go over a user-submitted question about the wrists rolling in the bench press. Since the person didn’t give any details about their specific situation, I go over and breakdown the general topic.
First off, I go over how you should diagnose the problem so you know when it’s occurring. Is it only happening with max weights or with any weight? Is it only happening on the way up or also on the way down? Figuring these things out can help with diagnosing what exactly is causing the problem. Then, I break down the problem into wrists rolling forward versus wrists rolling backward, and how to fix each one. And I finish off by going over some advanced methods.
My name is Arian Khamesi and I’m a Powerlifting Coach under The Strength Guys. In addition, I’m involved in the sport of Powerlifting as an athlete, meet director, referee, scoring manager, committee member, and more. On this channel, I produce videos that are beneficial for Powerlifting athletes, coaches, meet directors, and referees. The videos will be most applicable to those involved in an International Powerlifting Federation (IPF) affiliate, like USA Powerlifting (USAPL). But many of the tips and tricks can also be used for those involved in other Powerlifting federations.
