How to increase your strength faster

Here’s a quick tip on how to increase your strength faster, like a pro athlete.

Reach New Levels of Strength

Train with thicker barbells, dumbbells, pull up bars, and cable attachments.

Lifting weights with thicker bars increases the muscle fiber activation with your grip, forearms, biceps, and triceps.

This activates more muscle fibers and can lead to greater strength and muscle gains in your upper body, especially your arms.

A lot of people also complain about symmetrical muscle imbalances such as one bicep being bigger than the other.

Thick bar training has also been shown to help re-balance right and left side strength imbalances.

Thick bar training is best used for curling and pulling movements such as:

Some people even use thick bars for pushing motions and have reported their joints felt better as it may relieve stress from wrist pain, elbow pain, and the shoulder joints.

Unfortunately not many gyms are equipped with thick bars, and if they are, they’re super expensive to join.

But that’s all good because there’s a cheap, easy to travel with, and comparable solution.

These Fat Gripz can help strengthen your weakest link in your body.

They’re made of a non-slip, dense foam, so they’ll last a long time.

But you don’t need to use Fat Gripz for every pulling or curling workout.

Just think of them as another tool in your toolbox of ways to build variety and throw a different stimulus at your body.

You can bring your Fat Gripz to the gym and attach and detach them to:

  • barbells
  • dumbbells
  • chin up bars
  • cable attachments like a rowing machine bar

How To Build Bigger Arms Faster

Here’s another really good tip on how to build bigger arms faster and get stronger.

Focus on the lowering of the weight, called the eccentric or negative, during any bicep curl movement.

Slowing the eccentric will really fire up the burn in your biceps as well as helping increase your forearm and grip strength.

Remember, your body is only as strong as its weakest link. 

This means if your back and legs can barbell deadlift 400 lbs, but your forearms can only hold 200 lbs, that’s going to limit your overall development.

  1. Bought a pair after watching this video! Just did my first chest workout with them yesterday! They are ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!! Thanks for the suggestion Brad!

  2. Brad, I see almost all MEN on the sites with Fat Gripz – talk to me about benefits for females. I would love to increase muscle (at least a little more). Or, is this only a guy thing? πŸ™‚

    1. Hey Glenna, same benefits for females (don’t let the marketing distract you). The biomechanics of lifts for females and males are the same. You need grip strength to lift more, build more lean muscle, and burn more calories.

  3. My pecs are my weak links right now… im 163 pounds, 17 years old 6,1. Even though im in amazing shape my pecs are the one thing that is lacking. I can only bench 120 3×8! I dont understand why it may have to do with my smaller shoulders/runners physique? I am a competitive runner as wel

  4. I always have trouble with increasing my dead lift weight b/c of my weak grip on the weights. Thanks for sharing this great tip!! πŸ™‚ LOVE the Live Lean Afterburn and Awaken the Abs programs! I’ve gained great muscle and lost inches all over! Thanks Brad! πŸ™‚

  5. Loovee your videos.. I just have really trouble losing the inner thigh fat and my love handles i try to eat as healthy as i can and exercise a lot i just cant seem to lose these last like 20 pounds.. do you have a detox or cleansing videos?

  6. My arms are noodles. I hear a lot of people say you might have bad genetics for a certin type of muscle group. I think i believe this too. I was looking at my dads arms and they look just like mine just a bit bigger. He works in concrete so he’s always working those muscles. so i guess im going to have to work a bit harder when it comes to my arms. I think i might buy the fat gripz.
