Do you prefer to hang on bars with an open or closed grip?

A closed-grip activates your forearms for a stronger clasp on the bar, but because of that activation your grip gives out sooner.

An open grip is more comfortable (especially those with smaller hands), but doesn’t guarantee secure contact.

Depending on the exercise you might use one over the other!

IN-GYM WORKOUT for Wednesday 4/7/2021

10 rounds for time:
20 pushups
3 deadlifts, 60/103/145kg

Make these deadlifts heavy but doable. Double overhand until failure then you can mix your grip. Pushups don’t have to be hand-release, but it may help your pacing.

CONDITIONING for Friday 3/26/2021

COSINE

Every minute on the minute for 20 minutes:
a. 12 burpees
b. 24 medicine ball push press
c. 12 medicine ball cleans
d. 36 plank jacks

Modify the numbers as needed-try to complete each of the movements in 40 seconds or less, at least for the first two rotations. Medicine ball should be about 20/14lbs+ so keep that in mind if you’re modifying the equipment.
