Hi Steve, hope the thumb issues resolves.I had a stained tendon in my thumb years ago and that made me realize just how important the thumb is in pretty much all lifts but especially in grip work. I knew a guy who had lost all fingers and thumb on one hand. He had a special device made of a hook and strap set up that allowed him to do most exercises and he was a very big and strong man. Those who want it will find a way. Anyway hope the thumb is better soon.
Regards,Peter.
