I used to use hook grip, but it got to be too much and constantly tearing skin off of one thumb.I figured when you mentioned the pec. I stopped doing an over under a long time ago, because of that. Much higher risk of pec or bicep tear with an over under grip vice an overhand grip.
Thank you, its been a battle and my my poor wife bearing the brunt of it. She has MS herself and this took a toll on her.That is great news about your son!
Yeah, that is weird about the pec. I assumed it was the under grip side. I use straps on anything that is not a single anymore. I am not worried about grip strength, I know it is there. If I can pick up and walk 200 lbs dumbbells across the gym without straps I know my grip is just fine.
Thank you, yes its a wicked disease. My wife takes some meds but refuses others. She is progressive so not getting better. The big trigger for her is stress and with the boys OD this knocked her down some.Sorry to hear your wife has MS. My dad does as well. He was diagnosed in 1989 and is still going, but life is pretty rough for him. He is stubborn as hell though and refuses all treatment and will not take any vitamins or supplements I suggest.
Nice work on the pull-ups. Most people, even body builders, struggle to get 18 pull-ups with just their bodyweight.
Agreed. The only way you can get better at pull ups is by doing pull ups.Thank you, yes its a wicked disease. My wife takes some meds but refuses others. She is progressive so not getting better. The big trigger for her is stress and with the boys OD this knocked her down some.
I used to really struggle with pullups and had to use the assisted pull up machine. I have been working towards a 20 rep BW pull up which I hit a couple weeks back so now working on BW plus....I think reason why most struggle is pull downs and the assisted machine do not involve the same mechanics, that when they try they just cant get more than a few.
