Hook grip only suck on the thumb for reps more than 2 or 3.

They fuck my hand up those. The meat right under my thumb. Ripped some skin off on my last deadlift day.

^ Yea I can feel great for 3 reps and the 4-5 are like someone is gnawing at my thumb during the lift haha.

Starting to think doubles are the most difficult rep range for bench press.

Charly can you explain the best way to work power hangs into my routine? Also what does exrx consider elite for the power hang, is four seconds standard competition hang time?

Serious question, are elbow sleeves only a short term solution to elbow pain? Only
My right elbow has been giving my grief and I think it finally "broke". Sensitive all over, cannot bench 135. Not numbing pain but sort of sharp and dull. I can still perform other exercise outside of anything that may put downward pressure on the joint i.e. Barbell bench, dips, tricep pull downs on machines, etc. I had only could do 10lb dumbbell tri kick backs today and substituted barbell with machines and dumbbell presses. Fwiw I can get a referral to a sports therapist for all the Bay Area athletic teams,

See a doctor if its that bad. Or get some voodoo floss bands and a across ball and fix it yourself
post #35262 of 57260
i know you're all excited about strapping yourself up with rubber bands but 'voodoo floss' can seriously fuck shit up even worse in certain cases
post #35263 of 57260
If you really want to test hook grip feels, try repping some heavy snatch pulls or snatch DLs. I hate those exercises.

How? It's a pretty damn effective device and is like a wrecking ball approach to any sort of injury or pain. I mean I can see if you're dumb and don't know how to properly check if you still have some blood flow going in the area.
post #35265 of 57260
yes lack of blood flow to your tissues is generally bad news but i did not mean a knee-jerk problem like that. we talked this over with my PT and she wasn't all that keen on the forced gliding of the fascia and all that shit that the treatment entails or something

not to say one shouldn't do it at all if it helps, but as with most things it's not the answer to everything.
