Today’s WOD is going to take some solid grip strength. If you are still hanging from the bar like a three-toed sloth and not using your thumb, you need to seriously watch this video. By engaging your thumb on the pull-up bar your grip is exceptionally stronger, therefore allowing you to hold on longer and get in those extra reps. It is time to break this bad habit. It might seem odd at first, but breaking habits are never easy.
