Stretching the wrists is not always enough. Too much benching, can lead to a tight triceps. This can make it hard to use a clean grip.
There aren’t many ways to stretch the Triceps. This video show the Overhead Triceps Stretch.
Here’s how to perform them:
- Put your arm overhead
- Grab your elbow
- Keep your upper arm perpendicular to the floor
- Pull your upper arm toward the back
Don’t pull your upper arm toward you head. This will stretch your lats, not your triceps. Go for quality, not quantity.
Perform 3 sets of 10 seconds after your workout, several times a week. Flexibility in your triceps will quickly improve.
Do these & the wrist stretches and the clean grip will be peace of cake.
