manual stretch grip technique?
I’ve been PEing for about 6 months now, and hanging for the last 2 months. I normally hung BTC twice a day while at work, but due to some changes I do not have enough time for that anymore. I felt I was getting a pretty good working hanging, I ended up gaining about .5 BPEL. But I never really felt any soreness from it.
So my new routine is to do four sets of 10-15min manual stretches during the day. I am simply standing up and stretching down. I feel like I am getting such a better workout, I am getting lig soreness for the first time. Although, the soreness only lasts about 30 minutes.
The problem I’m having is getting a good grip. I tried various grips and I have found a few that allow me to get a really good workout with minimal discomfort… but towards the end of my 10-15min workout, I find it harder to hold on and the area I am gripping starts getting sore.
I have tried wrapping with Thermaband and toilet paper but both ended up causing greater discomfort. Does anyone have any opinions on what to grip with when manual stretching?
Also, any opinions on my routine of four sets of 10-15min manual stretches? I am currently holding the stretches for about a minute or two each.
