Incorrect grip method, shaving
Hey all. First post here, but I’ve lurked around at a site or two for over a year. I’ve always tried to start a routine but the best I was able to keep up with it was 2-3 weeks once.
The main problem I find for me is that when I put the OK grip on the base, and start moving upward, my hand either brings some strands of hair (which don’t enjoy being pulled) or a fold of skin overlaps itself and any grip or tightness I was creating is gone.
So I guess my main problems are the hairs, and perhaps grips. Every picture/video I’ve seen has either had poor angles or a completely hairless midsection (and it looks to be much easier to do these exercises if you’re already hanging large) so I haven’t really found an example of a grip or what proper form for various grips would look like. Even then, I’m not sure how much pressure to apply and such if I DID get it correct.
I’m not too comfortable with the idea of taking a blade to my soldier, I trim around him but I can’t imagine if it were to get a cut. Unless there are easy/good methods to removing that hairy problem that somebody knows.my only options are to fix my grip or learn a new way to go about it. Does anyone have tips, suggestions, or good examples of other methods?
The plan is to just start the standard newbie routine. Everywhere I turn that’s what’s recommended for 2-3 months, despite anything. I’m not really looking to gain much, .75-1 inches length and .5-1 inches girth would be great for me. Though, if I ever see any gains I’ll probably get addicted and go for more.
Thanks in advance!
