Hook Grip Three or Two Fingers on Bar


#1

I just discovered I can get 3fingers on the bar I am still a bit stronger with 2 . Is it worth persisting with three fingers as it feels more stable in a manageable weight


#2

Don’t overthink it. Do what is comfortable.


#3

I go along with the above comment. I have pretty big hands and for the clean, I could hook three fingers. Being 6’0" with a fairly wide grip in the snatch, I could only get two. I know of some with small hands that could only hook one finger.
