~ Jill Van Gyn
- Focus on grip, use hook grip when possible, tape hands if you think you might tear. Grind callouses.
- Pick a rep scheme and stick with it, 5-10 to save your grip strength.
- Keep your core tight when picking up the bar and try and drop back to hook grip when returning to the hang position.
- Don't go to failure, listen to your body, your grip will be the first to go.
