The idea that during the bench press, the triceps would fatigue fast, resulting in a higher recruitment of the chest to pick up the load.
I'm not sure if I agree with this statement. The reason being is that you could also fatigue the triceps with an isolation exercise before, but this would likely hinder your bench press performance. More specifically, your triceps would fail before your chest and you would have to stop the movement. Therefore, you would actually have a weaker recruitment of the chest since you couldn't reach as much muscular stress as you could with fresh triceps.

That being said, this was a really good read and I definitely want to get some elbow and knee wraps and try it myself!
