Gymchat 245 - Feats of Strength (Grip Strength) (Jedd Johnson)

Fantastic.


Sitting firmly at the heart of many forms of training is Grip Strength. Whether you're a Performing Strongman, Competitive Athlete or anyone who enjoys spending a bit of time with the iron.
In this discussion we'll be investigating two key aspects of grip work - the various feats you'll occasionally see, and grip training in general. Tackling these is the insanely strong Jedd Johnson, joined by Personal Trainer (and Strength Athlete) Josh Hewett. Fantastic.

NB : We'd love to hear your questions and comments. If there's a particular subject you'd like Jedd and Josh to address, just swing by the event page for this Gymchat and leave a comment or jump in the Q&A (during the discussion itself).

And if you'd like to point your friends/colleagues to the discussion, just use the 'share' button at the top of that page. The more the merrier.
