Here is a very simple workout, but fantastic workout for your entire body, that will also fry your forearms and grip. All you need is a thick bar and plates, preferably they should be bumper plates.

 

WORKOUT
Warm-up with a little jogging and/or Indian Club swinging

George Zottman: Grip Specialist
George Zottman: Grip Specialist with his Thick Bar Equipment

Thick Bar Hang Cleans 5 sets of 5

Thick Bar Power Clean & Press 5 sets of 5

Thick Bar High Pulls 3 sets of 3 (You should really be feel this in your forearms by now.)

Thick Bar Deadlifts 5 sets of 2

Thick Barbell Curls 3 sets of 10

Roman Chair Sit-ups 5 sets of 10

Stretch, especially the hands, wrists and forearms
This will be sound very strange, but start your first hang cleans with just the empty bar. Add weight with every set and don't remove any weight until you get to the curls. You will have to make small jumps in weight as you are doing 18 sets. When you get to the deadlifts, use a conventional grip and you will be maxing out on that last set. It will really help to have a thick bar that rotates when you are doing the Olympic type movements.
Here is the photo of our new Thick Grip Bar that will make you feel strong as a Bull Moose!
