Strengthening my grip for heavier deadlift


Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about Strengthening my grip for heavier deadlift within the Women's Fitness (Female Bodybuilding and Training) category.

Excerpt: My deadlift has improved significantly but now I m at the point that I can lift more than my grip will allow. What can I do to catch my forearms up? I don't want to use straps because I want to build my forearms as much as possible. Its really the hardest workout they get. Maybe I will have to use straps. Maybe there is something I am overlooking? I dunno. Any suggestions?

    I like to use a hook grip myself. It allows your grip to hold absurd amounts while still maintaining symmetry (unlike mixed grip). The caveat is that it will hurt your thumb like hell the first few times you do it, but after a while it stops.

    You can try training your grip. Try hangs from a chinning bar

    Re: Strengthening my grip for heavier deadlift

    i would say do snatches but many gyms don't allow that with good reason and there is a significant risk of injury

    sounds like some high rep deadlifts using a thicker bar is your best bet. i know that worked for me

    and good on you for not using wraps or straps. i hate when i see that in the gym especially when they are younger guys. they are only hurting themselves

    You can do fireman walks, hanging from a pull up bar. I even recommend buying finger resistance bands to strengthen fingers.

    Perfect answer right here. As grip improves start adding weight to a belt. Hang as long as you can.

    I'd also recommend rack deads. It will allow you to lift heavier and improve your grip with the increased load
