Monday, April 8

Finally! Some real scientific evidence that shows us how important the hook grip is in the Olympic lifts.

If you are not using the hook grip in the snatch and clean you are sacrificing power, speed, and technical proficiency. Everyone thinks the hook grip is uncomfortable at first, but you just have to do it in order to perform these lifts well. Just force yourself to do it for a few weeks and you’ll get used to it and learn to love it!

Here’s a link to the full study:
