Burned out, do you even grip bro?

maxresdefault[1]Three of the four exercises I rotated between today worked my grip pretty hard.  Finishing up with 100 pound shoulder shrugs was the final straw.

Speaking of grip, there was a strong looking guy there today I never had seen before.  He was built like a fullback or linebacker.  I did a double take when I saw him doing one arm bent over dumbbell rows with 75 pounds.  I didn’t look twice because that is a huge amount of weight to do the movement with.  Even with my ostrich like build I have gone into triple digits.  What made me look twice was he was using wrist straps to hold the dumbbell.

When I did my 100 pound dumbbell shrugs, with no grip assistance, I made sure I was within his line of sight. Come on bro!
