Pull ups

Well Comrades its been nearly 17 years since I have been performing Pull-ups and what an experience it has been. They have increased my functional strength, increased my muscular size and improved my punch power, arm wrestling ability and they have nearly got me arrested!

Captain of Crush

How I closed the Captain Crush gripper 3# Captain Crush In my quest to close the Captain of Crush # 3, I soon realised that less is more. I am fortunate enough to already have a good grip and managed to close the #2 when I first picked it up, but only just! I firmly believe the key things that improved my grip over the years have been kettlebells, Rafter Chin-ups and Weightlifting. I soon realised after using the grippers, that the difference between the # 2 and # 3 was massive. I initially tried many ways to bridge this gap, such as Fat Bar Chins, Bottom Up Press, Wrist Curls, 1 Arm Pullups, 1 Arm deadlifts, but soon established I needed a more simplistic approach where I focused on doing the basics well. So I started doing the following routine twice a week to improve my strength.
