Just 3 weeks ago I was able to max out on deadlifts with 435, with no straps, and I'm now in my second week of the ABBH II and am doing high rep partial deads for the second time ever.
I wasn't able to complete 4 sets of 12 with 225. I had to stop and re-grip the bar twice on the first set, only got 7 the second set, 12 the third set because I re-gripped the bar about 5 times, and bearly 8 on the last set.
All because my grip failed, not my posterior chain.
I don't understand how my grip was fine (slipping a little) when maxing out, but I can't hold the bar long enough to complete 12 reps.
Is there anything that will help with the grip endurance, as opposed to strength (if there's a difference)?
I'd like to get something adjustable that I can work on at home. Are there adjustable grippers?
I think the last gripping equipment I had were Hulk Hogan grippers that came with the 10 or 20 pound Hulkster dumbbells (about 18-20 years ago).
