I decided to post this question here rather than the Grip Strength thread because I feel like there might be different techniques for building grip strength in a metcon versus weightlifting grip.
Please let me know if I am wrong.
I am just going to share my experience with you:
Yesterday was Fran. I finished in 6:51 so, as you can see, I am a badass
My forearms were about to explode. I was doing Pull-ups one at a time for the 9 set because I couldn't hold on to the bar. I realize that everyone experiences this in some form or another so what do you do? Do I specialize my grip training? Do I do Fran once a week? Do I just suck it up and it might take two years?
Maybe the latter answer is what to do and it seems reasonable (aside for the 2 year portion
) but I want to know what the experts say.
Thanks in advance.
