I meant that in the context of the strong pull and grip of the deadlifter. The stronger the pull, the more likely the armbar, choke, or dangly grabbing. Now tell me Sir Elton wouldn't approve of that last.
I'm sure Elton John would have uses for a firm grip and strong pull, yes. Plus it must be useful when grabbing bargains from Lady Gaga et al at the crazy clothes outlet.
