Thick Grips when utilised correctly increase the difficulty of pull-ups and therefore upper body strength - by a factor of at least FIVE - if not - MORE!
I've often written about thick bar training outdoors being brutal, callous building - and RESULTS producing, so the above should come as no surprise.
But, I've also written about thick gripz in the past - those THICK foam grips you can add on to your chinning bar - kettlebell handles - dumbbells - or just about anywhere that you can - to make the "gripping" part of the exercise that much more difficult.
Lots of folks think that this trains only the grip a lot more.
Incorrect, my friend.
Like everything else I say and do workout wise, you train the entire body hitting the BIG muscles in the upper body like you never hit before - if you incorporate thick grip training done right into your routine.
They make pull-ups tougher by at least a factor of 5. If not more. They're DIFFERENT from thick iron bars in that you can really squeeze these suckers, and it REALLY, really hurts - in a different manner from the equally productive thick bars you find outdoors.
This form of training makes you breathe hard and heavy.
It builds a grip of CAIN x 10.
It builds unnatural Kung Fu Like grip x 10 as well.
And it builds LUMPS of muscle all over your upper body - it gives you the sleek, muscular CAT like look you want - everyone wants. No, guys, the females dont like "big huge muscles and bloat around the midsection when youre fat and attempt to pass it off as "big" or some nonsense".
The X shape is what everyone wants - sees - covets, yet few can get it, which is a pity, because it's easy if you know how to do it, and THIS sort of training is one of the ways to do it.
Corrugated Core, currently in production before it goes on Audible is the book you need to pick up NOW if you truly want to become a lean, mean, fighting MACHINE with beast mode perennially engaged if I might say so, as I said in all my videos this morning.
Post a 100 pushups, nothing feels as good as grip work before getting back to pushups.
Nothing makes you feel like a BEAST more than pull-ups and grip training do.
And if you cannot do a single pull-up right now - fear not, we're here for you. Pull-ups from DUD to STUD within a matter of weeks, a course that has literally shocked the entire world in terms of "simple and effective" is your ticket my friend - if you just DO.
back to thick grips - I recommend EVERYONE doing pull-ups at home needs to get this cheap but highly productive tool to incorporate into their training. The results far outweigh the pittance you'll spend on them. No, we dont make 'em - as yet - stay tuned though on this one, we will soon! (when T shirts come out...).
Last, but not least, a great review for - well, the Simple and Effective Diet, which is yours GRATIS with a purchase of the 0 Excuses Fitness System ...
'Simple' just like the title says!
This book has some helpful tips to maintain good health. The tips are simple in the sense that it's easier to maintain the habits mentioned here. So 'bouncing back when stopped' is out of the question. The book also gives the reasoning and how the particular habit helps your body. It is a good short health-related book.
And there we go, my friend. Thank you, Prajakta Telele (FL) for submitting that one - much appreciated!
