Pinch Grip Strength Training (video)

Pinch Grip Strength Training (video)
Your grip truly defines the way you execute full weight and bar movements, and it’s something I’ve always focused on to make sure my hands don’t negatively impact my other more focused bodyparts during exercises. This is a great little introduction into getting stronger finger tension to ensure this, pinch grip is one of a few hand grip training methods.

Home Made Protein Bars On A Budget

Home Made Protein Bars On A Budget
Make High Protein Fudge Bars For less than 49 cents per bar!

My friend Dave Ruel used to be addicted to protein bars, eating 2-3 bars a day thinking they were good just because they were called "Protein Bars"... He would go for anything that had a lot of protein and tasted good.
Then, as he kicked his training up a notch, he realized he had to kill this fetish, a pretty expansive one too as a protein bar costs about $5... He had to stop eating these "candy bars with protein" but still needed convenient access to healthy protein. This is when he decided to create the perfect homemade protein bar. One that had all the good stuff and none of the bad.
Dave wanted them to be healthy but cheap to make.... Here's the result!They are damn good tasting and can be made in under 5 minutes... Enjoy!
(This one one of the many protein bar recipes he has for you in my Anabolic Cooking Cookbook).
