Greetings all. I've perused GB on and off for a couple years and started rudimentary gymnastic training in that time. This is my first post. I'm hoping to get some trouble-shooting advice regarding BL progressions. Specifically, sometimes when I do BL work the meaty part of my palms - the part connected to my thumb - hurts. It's not a good hurt, either. What might be causing this, and what can I do about it? Some background information on me... - I work on bars, not rings. - I can do a 60s German hang without pain. I am working on a flat tuck BL. - I'm not sure how to describe my palm position. I use what I think a regular fitness person would call a standard pullup grip. I do not have a false grip. If necessary I can provide a picture or video. Thanks guys. As Coach Sommer says: Yours in fitness, - Henry C.
