Losing Grip on Deads


Explained on this thread


Start doing farmer's walks a few times per week, you should notice an improvement in your grip endurance pretty soon.


My school gym doesn't allow chalk so I use a rosin bag (the kind bowlers use). It gets the job done and is less messy than chalk.




Chalk is an amazing substance I must admit...I only pulled my personal PR when I started using it...it did kinda tear the hell outta my hands, but it was worth it for the PR :slight_smile: I will never again DL heavy without the stuff...

Also, I do shrugs as heavy as I can with no chalk, no straps, both hands palms facing in. I can't shrug as much as if I had an alternating grip, but it has evenly strengthened my grip since I started doing it.
