A "Wrist-Friendly" Version of the Reverse Bench Press

March 18, 2015 | John Paul Catanzaro

The reverse bench press is not mentioned often and I must admit, I don’t prescribe it too frequently either, but it can be a great triceps exercise. The big knock against it is a comfort, or lack thereof. It’s not a “wrist-friendly” movement, especially under a heavy load, but there’s a way to make it an ally with one common weapon in your arsenal: it’s called the EZ-bar. Use it!
