Wuz Up fellow T-memberz,
I have been incorporating LUMBERJACK SQUATS into my training sessions. I utilize them because I injured my Lower Back in the past, and this exercise has a Great!! Deloading effect on the spine.
My lower back has gotten stronger and I am now loading up a decent amount of weight. This is a great sign of progress, but it has caused aï¿½?ï¿½
PROBLEM: My Grip gives out before my Thighs do
-Iï¿½??ve tried wearing gloves. This kind of helps because my hands get so DAMN SWETTY!! But it does not fully solve the problem
-Iï¿½??ve thought about using a V-Grip: This would incorporate the Upper Back into assisting my hands in supporting the load.
***Iï¿½??ve noticed the BB digs into my chest and bruises it. Not worried about this though, because itï¿½??s a good way to include HARD BODY training!!
***This is a great BANG-4-UR-BUCK exercise!!
?? Any suggestions on how to support the load ??
Iï¿½??ve included a Pic to help illustrate the exercise and help people visualize some ideas:
