Here are some
other products that can help with this program or any other
weight training regiment you might use.
Mark Rippetoe wrote the book on proper lifting form.
If you're new to free weight training or, like myself, just
want to learn what we've been doing wrong all these year,
this is the book for you. It goes into incredible detail on
the big compound lifts like Squats, Deadlifts, Bench Press,
Power Clean, & Military Press - The foundations of
program! This is a great reference to
have on hand before starting any of the weight
training programs above!
Believe me, after reading it, I'm amazed any of us have
knees left after squatting in high school! (of course that
may be why I needed knee surgery 2 years ago)
When you get into deadlifts of a few hundred pounds or
more, it can really take it's toll on your wrists.
Personally, I developed tendinosis several years ago, and a
flareup can take me out of action for weeks. Using
these Versa Gripps takes all the pressure off the wrists,
ensuring that all your lifting efforts are targetting the
correct muscles. Works great for deadlifts, bent over
rows, chinups, and any other "Pull" motion!
