The types of grips are so many: Overhand, underhand, hook, false, alternate, wide and close.

1. Overhand:Overhand is when your palms are facing away from you when gripping the bar. Overhand grip is used typically when doing back exercises like chin ups, lat pull down or barbell row and it is also used when doing bicep exercises like reverse curls.

2. Underhand:Underhand grip is when your palms are facing towards you on certain exercises. Underhand is used mostly when doing bicep exercises such as barbell bicep curls and reverse grip chin-ups.

3. Hammer: Hammer grip is mainly used when doing bicep curls but may also be used when doing chin ups. Hammer grip is when the palms of your hand are facing each other.

4. Alternate: Alternate grip is when one hand is under and one hand is over (usually strong hand over weak hand under.) Alternate grip is rarely used in the gym but is primarily used when doing deadlifts and maybe chin-ups. The theory is when using an alternate grip (especially with the deadlift) is that the trainer can lift a lot more weight.
