If You Want a Strong Grip, You NEED These
When you read the title of the post, you probably thought I was going to try to sell you some kind of new training equipment out on the market when.
That’s not it at all.
If you want a truly strong grip, there is one thing you need to have that you might not be doing in your training.
I know for a long time when I first started, I left this out, and because of it, my numbers suffered.
Since then, I no longer make that mistake, because I keep this in my training on a regular basis now.
No, it’s not a special piece of equipment.
It’s actually much more simple than that…
If you want a strong grip, you NEED strong wrists.
Think about it this way…
Many of the muscles that control your grip run through your wrist.
So, all the power is running right through that joint.
If you’ve got good wrist strength, that power will pass through well.
If you neglect your wrists, they’ll stay weak, and that means you’ll never reach your potential with your hand strength.
If you don’t have good stability there, you’re SCREWED.
So, the question is, how do you train for wrist strength?
One way is with Sledge Hammer Levering.
Sledge Hammer Levering involves gripping a sledge by the handle and then lifting the head up and down, under control, using wrist strength.
Chances are you already have a Sledge Hammer. If you don’t you can use any type of leverage device.
A mop or mop handle will work great.
Even a baseball bat can do the trick.
Remember, your objective is to work against leverage through a variety of angles, in order to make the wrists as strong as possible.
Because if you don’t have strong wrists, there’s virtually NO WAY you can have a strong grip.

All the best in your training.
