A poster at Go Heavy wonders where the current rule for maximum width of a bench press grip of 32 inches/ 81 cm comes from. Rickey Dale Crain offers up the only answer to this point, even though it's far from definitive. I'm sure others will follow.
If you can add any more information, be sure to head on over there.
i have checked with people who were around when the rules were written in the 60's and this number was just decided on...no one seems to know why though..
