Here’s a quick tip on how to increase your strength faster, like a pro athlete.
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:
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.
Check out this piece of equipment called Fat Gripz.
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:
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.
I’m pretty sure they also have a 60 day money back guarantee if you’re not happy with them.
