IM­PROVE YOUR GRIP STRENGTH

GQ (Australia) - - FIT -

Have a bet­ter hand­shake, and build more to­tal body mus­cle by in­creas­ing fore­arm strength. 1. Train with a thick bar. The larger sur­face area re­quires more from hands and fore­arms. 2. Try hang­ing from a chin-up bar us­ing dif­fer­ent grips, such as chin up, pull up, mixed and sin­gle arm. 3. Use farmer’s car­ries – a pinch grip with what­ever you have avail­able (eg bags, ket­tle­bells, dumb­bells, plates. 4. Lift sand­bags from the floor to over­head without the han­dles, pinch­ing the bag to get it off the ground. 5. Gen­er­aly pull heavy shit – we’re talk­ing ket­tle­bell swings, rope pulls and over­hand grip dead­lifts.
