I have elbow pain, probably because of weak grip.
I really like to use straps and I will continue doing so, helps me with focus on my back and for heavier deadlifts and better progression.
John Rusin article and another one before that I dont remember by who on elbow pain were great.
He says in article you should farmer walk with “x” amount of weight as a measure of sufficient grip strength.
I dont do farmer walks and it would take too much energy from the rest.
He only talks about farmer walks, but would regular barbell holding (no walking around) do the trick for training grip strength (not testing)? Does it have to be with dumbells (handle parallel to the body instead of perpendicular in front with a barbell), there is no DB heavy enough.
Would secondary grip work with accessories (captain crushers) be good or is it too underwhelming?
