Thought I'd resurrect this for future searchability with my own related, but slightly different, query.
Those of you who who read my recent YYFY post are permitted a wry smile, but I've recently had a pretty dramatic loss of my already meagre finger strength - I've gone from +22.5kg on 2-arm 10sec max hangs, pretty consistently, to +12.5kg, over only about six weeks. This has been a period of focusing on PE and endurance but I've still done a 10sec max hangs session once a week and have only been training 2-3 short sessions a week. I get that some loss of strength is to be expected with endurance, but this is way beyond what I've noticed before. My weight's been stable and I haven't changed diet significantly.
1) Am I broken? Is the end nigh?
2) Any point in switching to 20sec max hangs instead? I note that Ned for one reckons these are better for building/maintaining hypertrophy etc while 10sec hangs are more for recruitment. My finger strength responded pretty well over winter to combining 10sec max hangs with some density hangs (30sec).
3) If I only have a single hour and a half session a week to maintain finger strength during an endurance phase, am I better with a limit board session?
