Tip: Thick Grip Neutral Pull-Ups

Strengthen your grip by doing your pull-ups or chin-ups with a thick grip attachment or a couple of towels.

You can go low tech and wrap a towel several times around a barbell or dumbbell to create a thick bar, or you can add a set of ready-made thick grips.

Another side benefit of thick bar training is reduced stress on the shoulders and elbows because it disperses the force over a greater surface area.
