The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Grip strength excercises?

    Grip used to be an issue for me ages ago when I was skinny, weak and only pulling 300lbs. Pushed it and I suppose my grip just caught up.

    Now as I'm pulling abit heavier and with a snatch grip the it's becoming more of an issue. I've done 400lbs x4 on conventional deads, and I'm getting close to that number now but with the snatch grip. I'm doing sets of 5 now and PR'd today, but the grip was just about ready to break on the 4th and 5th reps of my sets.

    Anyone here use any good grip excercises to help their pull? I'd do a google search but don't want to find some shitty stuff and waste my time doing it. Rather ask the big boys at WBB.
    The only lift I'm proud of at this point is a close stance, ass to grass zercher squat of 170kg x2 at 85kg bw. If only they held zercher squat competitions...

    the easiest way to fix your deadlift grip is.....
    1. Train double overhand until you cant
    2. Train over under both ways
    3. Hold your deadlifts at the top, maybe on your last rep of the day, for as as long as you can.

    Some other things that ive been doing that i tihnk help are towel chinups, and deadlifts with bands. Band tension just rips the bars out of your hands.

    Fat Gripz and rack pulls have helped my grip strength but if you want a quick solution, use chalk.
