I am getting ready to go do some squats and some Saxon bar pinch grip work.

Saxon what?

It is a long metal 2 x 6 looking thing that you can add weight to on the ends. You use a pinch grip where your thumb and fingers are extended (straight).

It has a huge transfer to the rest of your lifts too.

Why gonzo grip strength though?

Think of grip strength as the tires on a race car. It is the interaction between the mechanics of the car and the racetrack.

Picture a 600 hp with race-tuned suspension and crazy aerodynamics goes out the window if the tires work like metal rims with 2 bologna skins on them. Sit and spin bitches!

No good.

Swap some race tires and you are on track. Haha, get it, on track, I make funny.

Similar to lifting. I am willing to bet you are leaving some lbs (or kilos for the non-US peeps) on the bar.

No fear my meat titan friend, I got ya.

Here are 4 simple grip exercises for Gonzo Grip Strength in record time.

The video above is completely free. No tricks.

If you want to add some specialty equipment like a Saxon bar, you can join us nutty gripsters and do so; but I give you cheap and easy alternatives in the video too.
