Have a go at my Grip Strength Challenge to see where you rank.
The Rules are Simple:
- Hang from a bar (double overhand grip), supporting either another person or at least 50kg in plates
- The clock STARTS when your feet are off the ground and STOPS when any part of you touches the floor
- No Straps!
It’s important that you remain “active” in the hanging position, so don’t shut your shoulder and back muscles off completely.
This is a decent Grip Test and i decided to try it out as part of my wider Forearm Training.
