Re: Training the Fingers and Hands

What are the movements finger extensors take part in? Most lifts involve finger flexors, and I am not an authority by any means, but it seems the significance is of extensors is limited. It may be that they get enough training from secondary signalling from flexors. I get the idea of training oppos...

Finger strength. Holding strength, Pinching. Etc. etc. But do you really want to go full grip fu? Would...

Re: What to make of the election?

No one on this board is going to convince anyone else to vote for someone other than their guy. That said, this obsession with Hunter Biden amuses me to no end. Let's apply the same journalistic/evidentiary standards you're using and apply them to Trump. How about: -a "gift" of $10M in cash from Eg...

Re: What to make of the election?

No one gives a shit what Hunter Biden did or did not do except for Fox News and the basket of deplorables. Shit like that would stick Hilary because plenty of regular people loathed her. Regular people do not loathe Joe Biden. They might not think he will be a great president. They might vote for Tr...

Re: Neck bridges.

In addition to all of the above, placing a slightly deflated soccer ball or such against the wall and pushing your forehead, back of the head, and sides of the head either for time or for reps gives another way to exercise it.
