Claw Curl

don of tha new grip

Recommended Posts

I got the claw curl over the holidays and get a good pump on my forearms. My question is on form, should my hand be in a "scooping" position or a flat "straight" positon (if that makes since) I currently use the scooping motion but feels odd :erm

John good luck with it I'm guessing that either way is good but i'm sure you'll see what works for you

As for the pull ups they do hurt after 3 the pain sets in, my finger tips are all red today but what i hear is that pain is weakness leaving the body :D

I tried this piece of equipment today (thanks to a good friend sending me one of his), and I pulled up 70 pounds easy.

Don, you use it just as if you were lifting a DB off the floor. I'm thinking you'll have to go HEAVY on this just to get any benefit out of it. I'll keep you posted on my results, but yeah, I do like it! :D

It's a device sold by IronMind where you slip your fingers into some closed loops and then lift a weight from it. Go to the website, I think they have a pic of it there.
