"2014 - Kunce of the year"
Grip in right hand much stronger than left for some reason.

Eating Maccas also helps according to some.


Something I need to work on. After around 4 sets of heavy deadlifts starts slipping real bad. Chalk would probably help though.


What are you guys doing for your grip strength?
Absolutely nothing. Always used straps for snatch, clean pulls, and halting deadlifts. Relied solely on extra adrenaline release to lift maximum weights, born out of a competition environment, where an atmosphere of positive tension/nervousness is automatically created.


Kunce of the Year 2015
i just ditched the straps, can now row 90kg each hand. probably more if i scrapped good form.
