So I know this MIGHT be "WFA" BUT Im looking to improve grip strength, I have one of those pro grip things to help. What else could I do? How often should I be "working" on my grips? I don't wanna over do it!

Thanks Phone Post 3.0

TTT. Burned out my grip this weekend at a tournament. Made me realize that grip endurance is very important for competition.

So far I only do kettlebells and Bulgarian Bags. The Bulgarian Bags does help with grip strength as well as the Bottoms-Up Press for kettlebells.

People tell me I have a strong grip. I always tell them I use the "grapple gripz" when I do pull-ups and use "fat gripz" for dead lifts. Both those products aren't that cheap but I feel they keep my grip strength improving. Phone Post 3.0

What helped me to improve grip strength was to perform grip training exercises while the wrist is neutral, in flexion, and extension.

Often overlooked, while rolling you are never just securing your grips while in a neutral plane.

Take a stress or squeeze ball and with your wrist in neutral position squeeze and release, repeat this exercise now with your wrist in flexion, and then extension. I noticed my grips were much more weak when not neutral. It worked for me. Phone Post

I've been doing a lot of battle rope lately, and I find that it has had a very positive effect on my grip strength, and overall endurance of my forearms, biceps and core.

I have found that bouldering is the best for developing your grip. There is also a lot of other benefits that crossover into bjj as well.

farmer walks with a thick handled barbell or wrap cloth around it until it's thicker. something that will require your entire hand engaging in the grip at 100%.

Practice Judo.

You'll gain insane grip strength from practicing Judo. Because if you don't get grip control expect to get thrown.

Does anyone like the Capt of Crunch grippers? I would think holding closed the 1or the 2 would simulate gi gripping.

Also pull ups gripping a gi hanging over the bar would be good. Phone Post 3.0

Hang a gi and do pull-ups by gripping the collars regular grip and lapel choke grip. Cut the sleeves off a old gi and tie them each around a concrete block. Grip the sleeves with a monkey grip and lift them off the ground Phone Post 3.0

Your grip muscles are hard to overwork, you can train them often. We do a few grip exercises before most classes by dragging a partner across the mat while they lay on their back and you gripping their sleeves with spider grip, then pistol grip, and then with you holding a belt ( they hold the middle of the belt and you hold the ends- no wrapping the belt around your hands). The stronger guys will sometimes throw their belt over the bag rack and climb it using just their arms from a seated position (I can't pull that off) Phone Post 3.0
