Its deadlift day. You’ve got the bar loaded up with a potential new personal best. You feel strong. You feel confident.
“Hell yeah! That baby is going up today!”
You walk up to the bar all set to rip it off the group. It’s showtime!
Headphones on. Taylor Swift blasting on full volume (Hey, I ain’t judging!)
You grab that bar and start the pull. Boy it feels good! That back… Thick, Solid, TIGHT! You’re gonna make it….
And just as you break past that first sticking point… Trouble strikes! Your fingers start to open up and you feel that bar slipping off.
“Wait. No. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO…”
The dust settles. And the scene ain’t pretty.
That bar is on the floor. And you’re in the corner with your head bowed down in shame.
Ok, I’ll admit that’s a little too much dramatization. But you can’t deny that you’ve faced this problem before. Where you’ve gone into a set of deadlifts or pullups or rows feeling very strong but were FORCED to stop the set early because your grip gave out well before your back did. It’s happened to me too. And IT SUCKS!
Fortunately, I found out this really cool gripping technique that allows me to practically WELD my hands to the bar and give me a grip that NEVER fails me.
And today, I’m going to share that technique with you!
A chain is only as strong as its weakest link. And if you follow the tips I share with you today; I assure you that “weak” link of yours is going to become one strong motherf*cker!
Keep Learning, Keep Growing!
