Grip Strength: Don’t Leave Home Without It

Grip Strength: Don’t Leave Home Without It

In today’s blogisode I’m going to give the fingers a bit of a break on pounding the keyboard. In the case of this post I’d say I’ve earned it, particularly since I’ve managed to give my grip a solid amount of work in making these videos for you!

The Importance Of Grip Strength…

In terms of performance your grip strength is vital in being the initial point of contact with most any lifting movement you can think of. It doesn’t matter if you’re doing a pull up, a deadlift, a kettlebell swing, or a dumbbell row your grip has got be solid in order to move any significant weighted resistance.

Today I’m going to present 3 different unconventional movements to demonstrate to you how you can develop a killer grip that’ll prepare you for most any physical scenario. Whether you’re lifting, grappling, or climbing your way off the side of a mountain you’ve got have a solid grip and this is how you can make sure to do just that!

There are obviously many ways to enhance grip strength. We can develop crushing grip, pinch grip, wide grip, and finger strength which all play a part in one’s grip performance. To kick off a solid demonstration of how you can develop your pinching grip in a very simple way check out the video I’ve included here below.

Additionally we can challenge ourselves by developing our grip in other ways. Another way is to utilize a kettlebell for the truest ball busting challenge of doing a bell up press. Check it out here.

If this all isn’t enough you can challenge your gripping skills even further by incorporating a wide grip along with dropping and catching an object in continuous fashion. This can typically be done with a medicine ball that you can use to grip, but if a medicine ball isn’t available then no worries my friend because a fire log will work just as well.

As you can see there are always alternatives if you happen to be short on equipment and resources. Make sure you invest the time with your grip so that you can improve all of your other lifts and PR’s.
