    Grip Strength

    I was just wondering what exercises you do to increase you grip strength? I've noticed it really helps especially on the ground if you control your opponents wrists you won't get hit with many good shots and you can setup submissions easier.

    I heard finger push ups work or one of those hand strengthner's I forget the the term for'em. But its triangler in shape and has two handles with a spring on top, you squeeze the two handles togather and the spring gives resistance.

    There is also good ole fashion masturbation.

    captain of crush hand grippers work really well for grip strength and are much more powerful then anything you will find in most local sports shops. The only problem is that the CoC don't work the thumb at all, so you need to find a way to do that.

    If you want a cheap easy way to work grip strength go find a chin-up bar. Grab a small towel and throw it over the bar. Hold on to each end of the towel and start doing chins. IF your grip lasts longer then your chins(which it won't if your asking this question) just try to hang on for a few more seconds. This is the important part, go call a cab, you won't be driving home.

    I am of the opinion that you need to strengthen your forearms as well as the hands if you plan on having a good grip.

    Farmers walk.
    Grab two heavy dumbells. Keep good posture. Walk around with them as long as possible.
    Do it a few times a week, keep trying to beat your record.

    Captains of Crush grippers are good.

    If you really want to work hard, take up rock climbing......seriously.
    Go to one of those indoor centers and pay to climb around.
    Full body workout, as well as one of the best grip workouts.

    rock climbing is indeed probably the single best grip workout. Most guys will also learn how much the over-rely on upperbody strength as well, forearm pump being inescapable if you are doing so.

    for good grip strength also never wear gloves or use wraps when lifting. Your grip and forearms will get a lot stronger just without these aids. Case in point with wraps you can often get 4-5 more pullups than you can without.

    Take a 25lbs plate and a 10lbs plate. Put them together with the flat sides facing out. Grip them in your hand the same way you'd hold a frisbee. Hold them for 30 second and do a few sets.
