Hey Live Leaners,
On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m going to share 1 training insider tip on how many pro athletes, US special forces, and MMA fighters build their incredible strength faster.
Train with THICKER barbells, dumbbells, pull up bars, and cable attachments.
Lifting 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.
Say goodbye to chicken noodle arms.
Also a lot of people 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 like upright rows, preacher curls, and standing bicep curls. Some even use them for pushing motions and have reported that their joints felt better since it can relieve stress from the wrist, elbow and shoulder joints.
…and if they are, they’re super expensive to join.
But that’s all good. cause there’s a cheap, easy to travel with, and comparable solution.
Check these Fat Gripz out.
You can bring them to the gym and attach and detach them to barbells, dumbbells, chin up bars, or cable attachments (like a rowing machine bar).
If you really want to build, bigger and stronger arms, focus on the lowering of the weight (called the eccentric or negative) during a bicep curl. slowing the eccentric will really fire up the burn and increase your forearm and grip strength.
Your body is only as strong as it’s weakest link.
So if your back and legs can deadlift 400lbs but your forearms can only do 200lbs’¦that’s going to limit your overall development.
These Fat Gripz can help strengthen your weakest link.
BUT you don’t need to use them 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.
They’re made of a non slip, dense foam type device so they’ll last a long time and…
I’m pretty sure they also have a 60 day money back guarantee if you’re not happy with them.
So go check them out.
