Nice blog! Another thing, my hobby is GS, but in addition I have modestly started with some Oa DL with a fat rolling handle. Fun and it really targets my grip in new ways.I wonder if you have any reflections on the carry over between thick handled implements and GS training.Ie. is the strength built with fat bars etc of benefit for GS-strength (or should one go for grip training with 35mm tools)?Thanks!
I do believe there is some carry over and continue to use fat handles in my training. However, I feel I have experience the great grip gains from GS training than I have GS gains from grip training. Grip is a small part of the overall body, although important, strength gains here (grip) will not radiate as much throughout and into other strength areas. Whereas kettlebell/GS training has a grip component and is full body strength-endurance. Here strength gains will be noticed more readily, i.e. grip strength.
Thanks a lot! Makes sense; and I now feel comfortable to spice my GS main course with a little fat bars :-).
