YOU’RE ONLY AS STRONG AS YOUR GRIP!
🔥 How many times has your grip given out before other muscles when working out? Do your forearms and hands give out during trap exercises, deadlifts or even bicep curls?
🔥 You’re only as strong as your grip.
🔥 Over half of the muscles in your body are designed to help you in hanging and lifting stuff off of the ground.
🔥 Most of the time it’s your grip that exhausts first, limiting the amount of work you can put on your pulling muscles.
🔥 Your grip also affects your pushing muscles.
🔥 Your body keeps your overall muscles relatively balanced. Your pushing muscles can only become as relatively powerful as your pulling muscles. So, a stronger grip can lead to stronger pushing muscles too!!
🔥 A powerful grip can even affect your core! One of the most effective ab exercises is the toes to bar or a gorilla crunch. Without a strong grip, it becomes nearly impossible to do right!
🔥 So next time you hit the gym, drop the straps and silly gloves and add in some new grips!
