One of the things that always gets in the way of your training is your grip
Sometimes it fatigues before you do & doesn’t let you put the intensity you want into your workouts
You can always work on your grip by using fat bars, ropes, sandbags, trees, farmer walking…overall making the bar or object your trying to use to be a lot harder to grab
I personally love using Sandbags since they are a challenge to grab specially the heavier you go
But one thing that has always been on my list of to-use-items for grip are Towels
Those things that you use to dry yourself everyday are powerful grip builders
If you have done training with towels in the past then you know how difficult it is, and if you haven’t definitely start doing it – it will crush your grip!
2 of my personal favorite exercises to do with towels are pull ups and inverted rows
Grab 2 towels & do a pull ups while squeezing the hell out of them
Do this for 3-4 sets of 3-5 reps & I know your grip will be fried
If you get tired or can’t do towel pull ups no more, switch to inverted rows & finish your sets with them
Most likely your grip will give out before your muscles do, so keep the reps low (3-5 reps)
Sprinkle these at the end of your workouts & strengthen those hands
Overtime it will make any bar movement a lot easier & will help you to do more pull ups, so get to work!

P.S. The thinner the towel the easier it will be to grab, so start with those and progress onto thicker ones overtime
