Drop This Drill Like a Bad Habit
If you’ve been around my newsletter or my YouTube Channel for any amount of time, then you know I hate training methods that are a waste of time.
I mean, I want every single drill you do to mean something.
I want every exercise you do in the gym to get you closer to your goals.
And if it doesn’t help you out, then I think you should totally scrap it from your training.
One drill I thin everyone should drop like a bad habit is Blob and Block Weight Drags.
This is when you take a grip on your goal Blob, tilt it to the side and pull it along the floor.
To me, this is a complete waste of your valuable grip training time, because it takes emphasis away from your thumb and puts it on the fingers and wrists.
Doesn’t it make more sense to build thumb strength in order to lift the Blob?
Plus the “Force vectors” don’t match up, because in order to lift the Blob you need to pull it vertically. With dragging, you’re pulling it along the ground.
Doesn’t it make more sense to build strength lifting the Blob upwards, rather than across the floor?
Sure, if you work your Blob for a year or 2 with dragging, you might get it, eventually.
But wouldn’t you rather accomplish your goal quicker than that?
When it comes to Blob training, you need to focus on work that keeps the emphasis on the thumb and forces you to pull the Blob upwards. That’s why I feel that Deloading methods are the absolute best ways to train to lift the Blob or other Block Weights.
To see some of my absolute FAVORITE ways to Deload the Blob/Block Weights, pick up my ebook, LIFT THE BLOB, today.
I guarantee you will lift the blob or your other goal block weight FASTER if you get this ebook.
All the best in your training.
