A field day for you GRIP fanatics out there. Including yours truly, the bonafide leader of the pack in that regard I’d say, hehe, though I’m waiting to be toppled from the post! ;)
But really, I spoke about outer forearms and the SWELL you feel (not pump! This is real training!) when you train them right along the outside.
Talk size – strength -e verything!
And now, in tandem with that, as I finish that workout which I interrupted mid way to write to you (and yes this one has been interrupted too!) ...the res tof the forearms.
This one includes THICK gripz – those foam like handles you often see on doorway chinning bars.
They seem simple, but are nothing of the nature. Anything but I was gonna say!
And I have NOT covered those as yet in my courses. Pretty much because you dont need ‘em, but if you have ‘em, they make a very welcome addition indeed to your grip arsenal and indeed pull-up arsenal.
And it’s this.
HANG for time.
Really squeeze those suckers!
I know I mention all this in thick bar work etc in the book.
But these grips work you differently.
You’ll feel the FINGERS really working hard as opposed to the thumb, whereas thick bar works distributes the load evenly.
Which is better?
I do BOTH, and so should you, but if you had to choose one, the latter.
But if you HAVE thick grips – well – use them!
And pop off handstand pushups post all this.
And stationery handstands, walks, and the works.
Thats the end of the workout then – write back – tell me how you feel afterwards!!
PS – Off to finish now!
