Main Question or Discussion Point
Hello, apologies if this is the wrong forum to post this.
I have a question related to fitness. When holding a barbell overhead, sometimes it can spin due to poor timing, flexibility, etc. However, I notice it is significantly harder to counter the barbell's spin when holding it with a narrow grip compared to a wider grip, assuming the lower body position is the same. Can anyone explain why this is?
Additionally, with the narrow grip it feels like there is less room for error in the forward-backward direction, holding the lower body position constant. Does this have anything to do with the fact that the barbell is higher off the ground due to the narrower grip? If yes, why does this create more potential for instability?
