once you know how to use your thumb properly - it works for yo and also increases grip strength

much love - tuck
Tucker this is absolute bull****, you are NEVER allowed to disagree with me! I guess this means I will have to switch back to thumb around the bar. BTW how do I work the active thumb grip?

Jerry as a rule of thumb (awful....awful pun) always listen to Tucker, Steven Low, Robert Lowe, or Roger Harllel (sp?) over what I write or anyone esle for that matter when it comes to gymnastics.
