Workouts for grip strength

  1. Workouts for grip strength


    I am going to be competing in the NAGA grappling tournament in New Jersey in a little over a month. Looking for some workouts that will increase my grip strength. Preferably ones that don't require a special machine. I do have plate weights, dumb bells, a bench, squat rack etc.....


  2. For grip try workouts that kill 2 birds with one stone:
    hanging leg raises
    pullups
    chinups
    Deadlifts

    Working your forearm muscles increases grip strength as well.
    Do some db forearm raises both pronated and regular.
    try it with a barbell as well and behind the back.
    You will love the way your veins pop out on those when you get that burn going

  5. try the following

    Towel Pullups 3 or 5 sets to failure

    Towel Barbell Curls

    plate pinchers

    go to stronglifts.com and search some i found a youtube link and did the workout today my FINGERS were sore lol

  6. ...raw deads.

    Hold for longer periods @ top for increased grip strength.

  7. pplate pinchers with 45lbs for 30 -45 sec rep

  8. farmer walks. or if you dont feel like walking. just pick up some heavy dumbells or whatever you have access to that is heavy and HOLD IT. thats it. pretty simple. simple and effective. i wear gloves when i do this because it tears up the skin on my hands. good luck.
    deadlift or DONT lift
