A strong grip is a big deal; doing daily tasks, firm hand shake and when training. Your grip is what connects you to most of the tasks that you are doing.

1st Installment:

Over Christmas, I was reminded of one of the many benefits of having a home gym to train at. On the days that commercial gyms shut down (or have limited hours), it’s super cool to be able to get my workout in when I want to. Felt good to get a solid leg...
