Would any of you favour this over your normal bench press when training hypertrophy specific? If so what makes it better?

Is this the type of exercise were in you lower the bar on the neck when doing bench presses instead of mid chest?. I'm also curious about this one. I tried to do this but i cant go deep like were the bar can touch your chest so i end up doing my normal press that is on mid my the chest.

IMO.. This is built for upper chest. but since we all know that actually there is no such thing is an upper chest. The chest is just a big muscle. If you want to target an object the best way to hit it good is through its middle. But if there is a good benefits from doing this. i also really want to know..

A friend once told me it focuses more on the chest than normal BB BP... I am doubtful about though. I tried it a couple of times but it felt unnatural to my shoulders and I already had shoulder problems during press exercises so I decided to skip it.

It boils down to the powerlifting vs. bodybuilding benchpress technique debate. Many bodybuilders love the guillotine press because it apparently recruits more pectoral muscle fibers.

What it also does is force you to flare out your elbows and stop the bar before it reaches your neck. Each of these conditions put an immense amount of strain on your shoulders. To combine these two conditions together in the same lift is a horrible idea IMO.

Hi bro.. Do you have link or article that says it recruits more pectoral muscle fibers.

i have a mate that struggles to do normal bench press. when he started going to the gym he thought guillotine press was correct form for standard bench.
