I think benching wide is a recipe for shoulder injuries. I used to do it and I used to have shoulder trouble. I switched to a much narrower bench grip and a really narrow military press grip and it's helped my shoulder health immensly.

Unless you compete then I would recommend against wider grips just because it's better to bench/press today & tomorrow than just today. (quote from Jim Wendler)
