The tighter your grip the easier/more successful the lift. I don't feel I need to explain myself but since this is a novice/beginner thread I will put some science behind it.
When you grip the bar hard during any movement it sends responses to your brain that prep your whole body for the lift. Ever wonder why you can lift more with straps? This is not an excuse to always use straps though.
Thanks heaps I actually tried this today it really does make a difference.
