Grip, hand, and forearm training is an often neglected part of one's program, yet grip strength is so important. If you've ever had wrist or forearm pain, had trouble opening a jar, felt your grip weaken while working out, wanted stronger looking fore-arms, or just wanted a firmer handshake, these exercises are for you.
These exercises are also important for athletes and weekend warriors participating in sports that involve throwing, swinging, catching, carrying, or gripping... yes, I know that covers A LOT of sporting activities! The ones I demonstrate for you in this video include:
- Parallel Thick Grip Static Hold
- Wrist Roller Variations
- Pinch Grip Block
I had quite a few exercises to share with you so to keep the video length to minimum I've separated this into 2 parts. Stay tuned for PART TWO next week for more unique and effective exercises to help you get a grip on things!
Let me know if you have any good grip / forearm exercises you use regularly if I missed them!
