Default KB: Pinch Grip Swing

No vid, I'm afraid guys I cherish our windows, so I won't be doing one either



Anyway, the exercise is for grip strength, obviously, and it's basically just the normal KB swing but instead of gripping the handle by using the palm of the hand, the fingertips are used...place fingertips to the front of the handle (as it sits on the floor, in front of you) and place thumb to the back of the handle; pick up KB an swing, as normal.

I'd imagine a very light weight would be the best thing to start out with for this one. Sounds intriguing and I may yet give it a shot but I'm not sure in this case if the 7.5kg won't prove a touch too heavy, for a female using Pinch Grip and swinging the thing.

Better grip that KB tight. You can kill someone doin those hahah. But it will probably improve your grip strength by the fear of having it slip outta of your hand and breaking something or someone.

I tried it, managed to get the 8kg KB off the floor with the Pinch Grip, no way could I start the swing though...I guess I could work up to the weight using weight plates, start lower.


Certainly wouldn't want anyone standing in front of you....homicide by KB
