Pinch Grip Deadlift Exercise Tips

The video below is self-explanatory so I'm going to list some small tips which make this exercise more efficient:

  • Learn to apply grip tension while keeping your entire arm loose and un-flexed. The challenge is to be able to make a tight fist while keeping your upper arm and shoulder loose.
  • Progress by adding weight. After a point you will need to branch off into something else (once it becomes too difficult to pinch the dumbbell).
