FAQs

What is the hookgrip for lifting?

Hookgrip is a common method of gripping the barbell during an Olympic lifting movement (Snatch or Clean). While most commonly used for olympic lifts, the hookgrip has gained traction amongst powerlifters for deadlifts as well. Hookgrip provides a more powerful and strengthened grip compared to the standard double overhand grip, but at the price of immense pain to the thumbs. It is an universally accepted practice to wrap the thumbs with tape to reduce this pain. However, it can often be difficult finding the perfect tape that provides the flexibility, comfort, and durability that you want.

While taping your thumbs is commonplace for hookgrip, there are also a lot of people that avoid it for various reasons. Some just haven’t found the right tape that will allow them to have a natural feeling grip on the bar. Some just don’t like the excessive residue that is left behind after using tape. Whatever the reason, LiftGenie tape aims to remedy them to provide you with the best lifting experience!
