Oh yeah, lots of powerlifters use a very wide grip to shorten the range of motion, etc. and they can lift more that way.

I wouldn't recommend that to anyone though. Puts your wrists at risk due to the angle. For me, it does a funky thing in my shoulders too.

You gotta find what works for you for sure, but I would start out as safe as possible, then experiment afterward.
