How do I improve grip strength

I failed a 3pl8 dead lift and I can't do a single pull up but I can do a 4pl8 sqaut and bench 275
I'm convinced grip strength is my problem

    I find it hard to believe my fat ass can do sets of at least 4 pullups if you can't manage 1

      I used to be able to do like 8 of them and I used to dead lift over 4pl8s
      but I stopped lifting for two years and all my lifts recovered and even grow except for those

      Probably an upper back tightness problem. If your upper back/read delts aren't properly braced, the weight will hang off your forearms for the most part.
      Kind of like the different of a dead hang and an active dead hang, On active dead hang your lats get tired, on passive dead hang your forearms get tired.

      I don't reall follow
      but if this is true how do I fix it?

        Basically flex your lats, completely puff out your chest, lean back as if you're doing a lat spread, breathe in through belly and chest before the lift.

          yeah but this shortens my arms too much
          I have short arms, I'll never reach the bar without going really low

            I pull sumo, dunno too much about conventional.
            Some people just have a skeletal structure that is better for sumo, others for conventional.

    What happened to Tom anyways?
    I mean I know he stole money from Juji for gambling but Jujimufu has fucking sucked without Tom, it's obvious Tom was hugely important for making the youtube stuff good and Juji was just the pretty face
    I mean juji and tom were literally best friends for years and a bit of gambling made juji go full garden gnome and sue Tom?
    Tom is a victim of addiction and Juji as a roid addict is a hypocrite who also obviously helped Tom microdose
    Fucking sad
    Roidtrannies are seriously fucked in the head
    also do daed hangs

        use chalk and you’ll lift it. You should definitely try straps though for some shit. Not saying stop lifting raw but lifting more overall helps you lift more raw. You have sweatier hands than you think. Try chalk.

          yeah but I want to lift it raw, I think everyone should be able to do 1/2/3/4 raw
          I do all my lifts raw
          >You should definitely try straps though for some shit
          Like what?
          >You have sweatier hands than you think. Try chalk.
          I don't want to be called a gay homo for using chalk for lifts under 1/2/3/4
          Also I'd have to order some from amazon
          what brand is good?

            log off man it’s fucking chalk. you’ve let IST bury retarded shit in your brain. You will get there faster by LIFTING MORE WEIGHT. chalk will help you lift more weight. Feel free to take a longer road for no reason.

            straps, like meadows rows. You’d be surprised at how much better activation you can get in the intended muscle group when not limited by your grip. Why would you expect your comparatively tiny forearm muscles to be able to keep up with a giant muscle like your lats? You’re intentionally creating a weak link in the chain. Just make sure you do some isolated grip work. Even deadhangs will make a huge difference. If you use straps for some stuff you can stop holding yourself back and take a more focused approach to training grip at the same time.

            If people call you a gay homo you look like a gay homo. nobody has called me a name like that in my life. It’s chalk. Any chalk. You can get a chalk ball for like £2

              Ok but last time I was in the gym it was full of dyels and boomers, I was easily the strongest lifter there at the time
              and I saw some dyels actually wiping the fucking bar
              I don't want to ever look as stupid as that

                Stay DYEL and listening to some people that barely lift lmao every respectable DL'er knows it's not cheating.
                Yes, going into a balerina split and locking out at knees is cheating, which is why it's done in competition in order to win. Just do sumo stance with calves 90 degree vertical to the ground, you will still lock out around groin area.

    Farmer's walk, except tie a belt around the weights instead of holding it normally. Infinitely harder, makes you squeeze that hand as much as you can and calluses your finger. I recommend cheap judo belts

    Fuckin' hangs. Even if you can't actually pull-up, do hangs instead with as slow a descent as you can muster.

    There's other ways to increase grip strength like grippers and shifting a bell between pronated and supinated etc, but pretty much all of them offer a higher risk of developing tendon/carpal tunnel than the humble hang.

    Incorporate some of this grip work into a pull workout one day a week and use grippers 3 days a week according to ironminds captains of crush guide booklet

    On one pull day a week I do 2.5" rolling handle dead hangs 5x as long as I can do, plate lat pulls with a weight that tires your grip faster than your lats 3x AMRAP (preferably less than 7 reps and use the rubber Olympic weights as they are thicker and hit your fingers harder) and I also use a rolling 2" d-handle for all machine rows. You know you've just it when you can't even pick up a coke can for the rest of they day.

    Never do mixed grip deadlifts, do all deadlifts as double overhand, if that's too hard do double overhand hookgrip you'll still build grip, if you still can't grip use straps but sparingly as they prevent you building grip it's better you take a second between reps to adjust your grip than use straps. Look up tutorials for double overhand and hookgrip from Olympic weightlifting those guys can rep 500+lb overhand without straps You also reduce the risk of bicep tear by doing overhand.
