Lift Heavy and Level Up!

Hope and JAW Grips

My shoulders are sore after today's WOD. I managed to RX the weight which is not too heavy. I'm still getting used to the snatch and the lighter weight was great for working on form and technique. Need to focus on opening up my hips and my shrug. I noticed I'm getting a lot better at my pull ups. I'm starting to string together almost ten pull ups before my grip gives out.

JAW hand grips are amazing. I use them for almost every WOD that has bar work. I haven't had a single tear since. I just add some chalk to these bad boys and away I go. They do not need to be broken in which is a plus over gymnastics grips. If you're having trouble with hand tearing, try these out. I hate missing a day or two because my hands are torn and now I may not miss another day. I picked these up from check them out here.

Let me know if you have any questions, leave a comment at the bottom.

Hello, my name is Nick and I'm from Guam. I'm an avid gamer and functional fitness exerciser. I'm not great at either but I do my best. I would describe myself as a huge nerd since I love most things you would find in typical nerd culture. I started doing CrossFit at CrossFit Gof Metgot in 2013 as a way to get my weight under control. I decided to change my exercise habits to lose that excess weight and be more fit. Hopefully my story inspires people to try out CrossFit.
