I’m fortunate enough to have one of the U.S. top grip strength competitors as a neighbor. Just met him a few weeks ago and have been talking to him about getting together and training because up till now I’ve mostly trained by myself in a home gym. I’m running 5/3/1 and was curious if on sundays I did some grip work with him just how taxing that would be on my body.
Grip is one of my weak links so its something I’d greatly like to improve but not at the risk of hindering my other workouts. I’ve already added in another squat day on saturday where I do more volume with less weight just to grease the groove since i’m coming back from a hip flexor injury.
So my question is, for anyone that does a lot of grip work how taxing is it on your body? Does it take long to recover from?
