Hand Grip
« on: October 07, 2011, 01:44:26 »
I was doing research on strength no-weight workout . I came across a method that will help you with your hand grip. I seen around the forum a lot of members asking how they can improve their hand grip strength . Its simply going to a dollar store or anywhere you can buy those stress balls that will fit the palm of your hand and basically keep on squeezing it hard as you can till it starts burning, you can either go till you cant do it anymore or do it in reps and keep on adding more reps as you gain stamina .

I know another method, and it will save you that dollar (and the trip to the local mall).

Save a trip. Just use an old tennis ball.

Just remember, no matter how many squeeze balls you use, it's kinda hard to do a drive by on a motorbike...

Last Fall on course we did the grip test as part of our Expres test.

I had the highest score for the course........when the tester informed me....I simply said " ..of course.......I'm married" She really didn't know what to say......but the rest of my class had a good laugh.

But how do we strengthen the other hand?  If I switch hands, it feels like I'm cheating.

You won't get the reported posts or the inane PM's. Hey, maybe you should be a mentor!
