Not getting stronger?

Eric W. sent MUHDO his workout PLAN and said he’s not getting stronger. Here’s how we fixed it

OUR ADVICE All your exercises require a lot from your grip, so by the time you’re halfway through the workout, your hands and forearms are too worn out to handle heavy weight. Using straps will allow you to train heavy and save your grip. You should also experiment with straight-arm lat pulldowns as a finisher. These work like pullups but don’t require any grip strength.
