We capped off the workout today with some grip work. Simple and effective. The Farmer Carry/Dead Hang combo is potent. Grip strength is a limiting factor for many people. A strong grip translates well into many other lifts.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We don’t do these enough. The bent-over row is a great accessory exercise. It develops the entire posterior chain, from the hamstrings, to the gluteus, up through the erectors, and into the upper back and rhomboids. It is an overlooked and under-utilized pulling exercise.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Every now and then I increase the intensity as fatigue mounts. Rarely will I ever do that for time. But I do think it has value to hammer home efficient mechanics. Because as difficulty increases technique must improve. Otherwise, failure is an unfortunate by-product.
