GRIP is Essential

This post is catered to all my fitness people and to anyone who workouts out with weights.

Your grip plays a big role in your workouts; hence you are gripping the bar to bench press, squat or curl. You are gripping different handles or different ropes to make sure you have control of it so you can then focus working the muscle of your choice. So before you start to GO CRAZY in the gym on the weights; you need to make sure you have great grip strength.

Your grip strength will help you have better control with the weights which leads to you being able to do more reps or more weight. If your grip is weak, this will affect all your workouts and can even lead to injuries.
