Whole Body

My hands are holding my running times back.  It is not a preposterous claim when you consider that I rode my bicycle for 6 months and did very little grip work.  My lack of grip strength is by far the weakest part of my Deadlift which means that I am not lifting enough to really promote growth and strength in my posterior chain; the posterior chain is comprised of the lower back, glutes, hamstrings, quads, and calves and is responsible for generating the force required to run and jump, amongst other things.  This imbalance is forcing me to focus on improving my grip strength so I can make my legs stronger.
