    So ive using a 25 lb ez curl bar for awhile for overhead press. I put my hands as far out as i can touching the plates. My question.. is this close grip for overhead press? Am i working triceps more instead of shoulders? I feel like i am.. but i like it because when i press up my wrist + forearm push against the weights so it feels like it helps me lift it.

    Do you see some advantage to using an EZ curl bar for presses or is this all that is available?

    Unless you’re using the outer camber, you’re fucking your shoulders up with internal rotation and getting no benefit from doing this.
