Dear Coach,
I crossfit and when doing a workout I can't seem to hold the hook grip. This becomes troublesome trying to do multiple hang cleans. This could be in part to not always re-establishing the hook grip every time but also from simply repping out the clean.
Thank you

Try taping your thumbs and when Oly lifting in CrossFit workouts (I.E.: doing multiple reps at high intensity), you must be proficient in re-establishing your hook grip on the way back down to save time. In order to do this you will have to mess around with a few techniques to see what works best for you. Also, as you strengthen that grip, it will be a lot easier to keep it. So keep at it and good things will happen!
