Information
  Ah, the hook grip. The incredibly secure grip style that you keep hearing so much about. In the past (pre-Instagram age), hook grip was thought to be more of a weightlifting style grip, but now we’re seeing more athletes than ever utilize this grip to pull new.
  The hook grip is a useful skill for every strength athlete to practice and it comes with multiple benefits. In this article, we’re going to cover how to hook grip, the benefits that can come along with this grip style, and two drawbacks that should be acknowledged.
 
How to Hook Grip
 
  As the name suggests, the hook grip creates a natural hook out of the hand for lifting purposes. The thumb, index, and middle finger all work together to create what feels like a natural lifting strap. This grip style is so secure because the fingers wrap around the thumb protruding off the barbell, which then creates an equal amount of spin to keep the barbell from rolling in or out of the hand in one direction.
· Step 1: Press the area between the thumb and index finger into the barbell.
· Step 2: Wrap the thumb fully around the barbell.
· Step 3: Wrap the index and middle finger over the thumb.
· Step 4: Pull the lats back and slack out of the bar to maximize surface area for finger + thumb contact.
 
  One thing to note is that hand size does unfortunately matter to some degree with hook grip. Athletes with longer fingers and more mobile thumbs tend to fair best with this grip style.
  Smaller handed athletes, if you find that you can’t wrap both the index and middle finger around the thumb due to your hand size, then wrap what you can and adjust accordingly. Make sure you really focus on step one and minimize the amount of area between the barbell and your hand. Also, improving thumb mobility could be useful.
