Grip Weakness

by Lee

If you use exercise machines like the lat-pullover and pec deck for your training, then there is a very real risk that you are also neglecting your grip. Why is this such a bad idea? Research shows how a strong, gorilla-like grip doesn't only train your hands, wrists and forearms, but is necessary to apply strength from other body muscles too.

In short, grip weakness can inhibit your muscle building results in the gym.

And what about sports?

If you participate in a sport where you have to hold or throw a ball, or swing a bat or club, then the hands, wrists and forearms are heavily involved - because of this, a powerful grip becomes critical.

So what do you need to do?

You need to stop monkeying around, and start to develop a gorilla grip!
