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
