Vince Gironda's work really turns on a lot of lights when I read his stuff.
I actually was unaware of his wide grip bench to clavicles, but I was doing that on incline press as of late and have been pressing to clavicles.

I am assuming wide/reverse grip would have to be performed on a flat bench?

I would be interested in some links to Gironda's articles as I am only vaguely familiar with his principles.

Also, someone in the past suggested reverse grip dumbbell pressing, and dumbbell flyes starting with a neutral grip, and rotating the wrists so the back of the hands are almost facing each other at the top.

I am mainly just looking for ONE power exercise (could reverse/wide grip pressing be used not only for hypertrophy, but also adding strength increases routinely?) and a few good hypertrophy exercises for the "Light Day (Isolation Work)"
