This makes me happy in the pants... straight homo.

I need your intensity in my life once more my dude. Hopefully after this move, we can get some training in one day a week because my schedule sucks the big one. Good luck with the move and let me know the deal once you two are settled!

Good luck man and by now, you should be all moved in... Any interest in grip training?? Should help you out with your axle work and farmers :)

djpope said...

The grip training looks neat. Do you have specific stuff you'd recommend for holding onto farmers?

Of course! First and foremost would be gripper work and then on top of that we need to strengthen that thumb! Static pinching, dynamic pinching, wide pinching... the whole nine yards man. Wrist strengthening would also benefit you because with strong wrists you will be able to control the farmer apparatuses as you turn or as they begin to swing.
