    Yeah, pinching weight plates is brutal. Richard Sorin can do two 45's that way. Siiiiiiick. The jar of sand can be used to work the extensors as well, for balanced hand strength. Just put your fingers inside the mouth of your jar and spread them outward, holding it off the ground that way.

    Forgot to add, you can get thicker bars if you look for them. Ironmind carries a 2" bar, and PDA has them all the way up to 4". BRUTAL on the grip.

    SGT-

    Adding to what everyone else has said, I think that thick bar training (including thick-bar pullups), pinching weights and the wrist roller are all very effective.

    I also like to hang a towel on a pull-up bar, grab one end and each hand and perform pullups that way.

    the best things for grip strength, imho, are chishi and nigiri game exercises.... i always had a weak grip because of my girlish wrists, but once i trained with these implements, it quickly became better.

    I would liken it to the boxing or the muay thai of internal kung fu, even though that's like calling apples the oranges of the apple world. --WalkOn

    I just ordered these for my grip strength but it looks like it helps a lot of other thigs as well. Most people haven't really heard of them it seems.

    iron clubs

    Also Kettlebell training, Chinese stone and Iron Padlock training seem really good. I'm getting a few kettlebells next week.

    Ahhhhahhahhahhah! big clubs! nice!
    and if anyone ever tries to make fun of you for having two enourmous clubs
    you can smash them
    with two enourmous clubs
    and if theres a hot female you know, you can always knock her out and drag her back to your house, ala caveman method.

    "Mastery of Hand strength" by john brookfeild. Buy it, read it, know it. It is the definitive tome on Grip training and has tons of **** I never even thought of.

    Lately I have been training my grip with COC grippers (singles, doubles and overcrushes) every day a with 4-7 sets throughout the day (they just sit on my desk and I pick them up whenever). And I've been making some good progress, but I think I'll probably leave them alone for a week to recover soon. I also like to incorporate things like Farmers walks, thick bar holds and block weight work (tosses and snatches) into my grip routine.

    IMO, Pinch work and lever work are the most useful type of lower arm training for MMA or MA. Crushing strength (that you get from grippers) has minimal application.
