Tighten up Yer Game!

Well well, today was no joke… and after to talking to a lot of students I realized that so many of you fail to maintain your hands! Gloves are NOT the answer folks. Filing down your calluses regularly, switch up your grip (which will greatly improve your strength in different ways) and tighten up your game. Tightening your game means different things to different people. What can you do, what are you willing to do do tighten up your game? Post to comments.

Tomorrow, Whittman.

No joke…I need to sleep more…It makes such a huge difference when I sleep enough and/or through the night.

It’s okay, Crow, you can just say, “After watching Kevin tear his hands apart during today’s workout, I’ve decided to make this post. Hopefully, he’ll respond about how he can switch to monkey grip.”

I think gloves are a perfectly good answer. Ok, so sure, if you’re walking down the street and suddenly have to do 100 pullups, and you don’t have your gloves, you may get some callouses. But since you won’t have big ones to rip, you’re probably still better off. I’m down with different grips though, what can else can you do for pullups? I thought the grip with fingers facing you was bad form…
