Not sure why, but I can't get it to insert vid. So, if someone can, I would appreciate it. Glitch in pc maybe.

Thanks. I have posted vids on here before, but it just wasn't going through for some reason. Thanks again.

Very good tip Hulk. You see bad grips all the time. Not much talk about it.

That's interesting. I have grip issues so I will give that a try.

Glad it helped. It allows me to hold onto at least 30-40 more lbs. Probably more. Just practice from warmup up to heavy sets and it will become second nature. Also, I didn't mention, hold some extra chalk in your hands to really keep moisture down. Once I open my hand, the chalk with fall out of my hands, but my hands don't have any sweat.

Yeah, my biggest issue is the sweat that accumulates on my hands. Will get a strong first couple pulls, then I just lose grip due to moisture.

The downside of lifting in a commercial gym is that they don't want ya using chalk, but as someone that works in that gym, I think I will let me be the only exception. Bought some wraps to compensate, but I wanna get my maxes raw.

Will give this a shot. I'm sure with my deadlifts, I was doing the first grip...hopefully the latter will show some improvements.

Thanks

My log with updates is at http://hulkhires.com. my biggest gym pull is 815 raw with straps. I have taken big attempts in meets for the ttl. With my improved grip and strength I am aiming for 825 raw on nov12 @242. I have also pulled 750 easily off 1.5 inch def raw without straps and held on with no problem. Hence the reason I changed grip. To not miss a dl by it slipping away.

I will have more vids to help in near future as well as articles and interviews. I also do personalized raw training and you can contact me there or by email hulkhires@yahoo.com

This contradicts conventional grip advice, but is interesting. Does wrenching the wrists in such a fashion make one more susceptible to bicep tears?

Whether it contradicts or not it works. If you try you will see. AI am exagerating the wrench for demonstration purposes. They will be straight and not your bicep. The main thing is securing in your hand and this helps cinch it in there.

PS: Tried this for the first time and got 405# on the deadlift raw for the first time...and a new PR! I don't know why I went so many years without chalk, but the grip, and the lack of moisture really helped. I don't think I'll be using straps for any more dead pulls (unless I'm pulling from a deficit or something...idk)

The bar felt secure in my hands and didn't feel the slipping though the fingers as I used to in previous pulls. Perhaps that's just the chalk attributing to that, but regardless, noticed the difference.



Great tip!

Adam, I plan on trying this technique out over the next few weeks. If it works with my hands, it will work with anyones. I'll let you know how things go.

For the guys who are using and liking this grip, do you have small hands?

I by no means have bear hands...but I can fit in a large rubber glove if that means anything. From bottom of palm to tip of middle finger, my measurements are ~7.75.
