Never underestimate how important grip training is for your results. You can dramatically increase your results by increasing your grip strength.

  1. Reduce injury

Injuries such as golfers and tennis elbow are normally the result of muscle imbalances between the muscles in the upper part of the arm (biceps and triceps) and the muscles in the lower part of the arm (Flexor Carpi Ulnaris, Palmaris Longus, Flexor Carpi Radialis and Pronator Teres).

 

  1. Increase strength in the entire upper body

Improving your grip strength will allow you to become stronger through-out the whole upper body. This is because you will have the strength to lift a heavier weight for the allocated reps.

  1. Reach your goal

No matter what your goal, grip training can benefit you. Iā€™m going to use the three most common for an example: fat loss, hypertrophy and strength. If you increase your grip strength you will be able to lift heavier weights, thus increasing the speed in which you will see results.

 

How to improve

There are a few ways in which you can improve your grip. Fat Gripz are easy to implement and a very cheap accessory to buy which allows you to change the size of both dumbbells and barbells to a thick grip. Below are some ideas what you can use to increase your grip strength.
1. Fat Gripz
2. Thick bars
3. Towel (pull ups)
4. Static holds
5. Wrist curls
