How the Pro's Train Their Grip - Jouko Ahola

The Chin Bar hang for Time with Weight Added, from Jouko Ahola.

When I started out in Grip, I would use this technique from time to time. It is very intense and you have to be prepared mentally in order to reach your maximum time. Start out on a fixed bar and then move to a rotating bar, as Jouko does in the video. This exercise is no hang in the park...

For an additional challenge, try doing this exercise with thick work gloves on, especially if you play a stick/bat sport and must wear gloves, like ice hockey! Work gloves replicate the hockey gloves well and will increase the functionality of the movement.
