The reverse-grip barbell bench press is an advanced progression of the traditional barbell bench press and targets the chest, shoulders, and triceps. The reverse-grip places an emphasis on the triceps muscles and also activates the muscles in your upper chest. A tight grip and lower your elbows towards your ribcage are essential for maximum muscle recruitment.
