🚨 HOW TO OHP GRIP
✅ Like many of you guessed right, just like in the bench press, even on the OHP the bulldog grip has its place.
✅ The Bulldog grip is called like this because of the slight internal rotation if the hands, which resamble the paws of a bulldog.
🚨 The reason behind this is to allow the barbell to sit directly over the wrist joint, therefore eliminating the moment arm (MA) from wrist-to-barbell which can be seen on a normal grip.
This allows a much more stable and efficient force transfer from the elbows up, which can result in a stronger OHP.
It might feel awkward at first, but as you continue training it, it gets better and better.
