      Ya that is about right, I've seen people be from the end to almost the middle (close grip) so it depends on your arm length and size. But generaly where you have your hands is fine.

      You dont want to be any closer than middle finger on red ring. Personally I like my entire hand outside the red or just touching it. The wider you go the more chest your using and the wider your chest will get. The closer you are, the more your using your triceps.
