Is there a correct or incorrect positioning of the wrists in bench press? Does it matter if they rotate backward during the movement or if they're kept "straight", ie, in line with the forearm? Thank you, phil


I would keep them in line with the forearm.

Some experienced shirt benchers can actually cock their wrists back during a lift to either touch easier or lock their elbows when they're having trouble finishing the lift. These are advanced skills though. The majority of lifters should keep them straight, especially if you're benching without, or with minimal wraps.
