Gunslinger Grip 👍🏻
For some people the biceps can initiate and/or take over on back exercises which can reduce the amount of work the lats/back is performing. To ensure you get the most bang for your buck with your lats/back, you can implement a gunslinger grip (removing the index finger and thumb from your grip). This however should not be abused, but simply used as a tool to learn how to initiate the movement with the lats/back and to ensure the lats/back are the prime mover. With that said, it’s imperative when using the pistol grip to use wrist straps or Versa Gripps as well to reduce the stress on the forearm muscles. Without the index finger and thumb on the grips there can be far too much stress placed on the remaining fingers (small, ring and middle fingers). Once you get a better feel with using the lats/back, then reduce the amount of time using the gunslinger grip.
