Jihaleh Paid MemberI always find forearm grip really awkward, especially the pushing grip, like my upper arm is too short and/or my bust gets in the way. I had a teacher who would make us use forearm grip for climbing, and that made it nearly impossible, despite being able to able with hands. Is that just an anatomical thing or am I missing something about these grips?

VeenaIf it's the push grip you find hard, then it's most likey a strength issue. You need, triceps, shoulder and chest strength to push away. Practice standing with the forearm on the pole as I show and actively push the whole body away. You can even turn slightly to the side if the chest is in the way you don't have to be perfectly squared. Post a video if you want me to take a look. Both of these grips take time to build up the strength needed for many people.
