Hand health tip

I bet you love to lift heavy stuff or swing heavy clubs, I sure do.

You can develop a killer grip with heavy deadlifts, farmers walks, etc.

A strong grip is essential to lifting heavy.

Pavel Tsatsouline used to say “If you can’t hold it, you can’t lift it.”

Heavy barbells, dumbbells and steel clubs all require a strong grip.

But if it’s always grip, grip, grip you could be actually harming your hands.

Think about it this way.

If you always did curls but never did any tricep work how balanced would your strength be?

The same thing goes for leg training.

You probably do hamstring curls and leg extensions, right?

So why when it comes to our hands do we only work in one direction?

Here’s the tip: do hand extensor exercises too.

One of my favorites is using Iron Mind finger bands to do finger extexnsions with.

In fact, I was just did some before writing this email.

Google the health benefits of hand extensor exercises sometime.

Today is a good day to start strengthening those muscles.

Check it out for yourself.

I’m going to do some more of my extensor exercises right after I send this email out.
