Toning & Building Muscle : How to Get Crushing Grip Strength


Hi, I’m Bob Matthews with Power 1K Body Shaping
Program. Alright, you want crushing grip strength. There’s a few ways you can do this. You don’t
necessarily need a gym to get this. This is a ball that I have at the gym; similar to
a tennis ball. You’ve all probably have heard this depending on how old you are. Well, when
I was in high school, this is what we did. But in any event, you can be squeezing a tennis
ball. It’s all about repetition and how hard you can squeeze it. A tennis ball has enough
texture that most people can actually strengthen by squeezing it. It’s not too weak, and it’s
not too strong; like say a golf ball. One is too small, and it’s too hard. You wouldn’t
learn anything from it or gain anything from it. So, that’s one thing you can do. In the
gym, this is the way I prefer to do it. You have your forearm strengtheners. Now, if I’m
building my body; my forearms, I’m using probably twenty five reps four times. The difference
when I use for crushing grip strength, which I do also, is you go up considerably. Now,
here’s where people make a mistake; they don’t go up heavy enough. So, you’re going to have
to challenge yourself in this. So, in this practice, I’m going to use these seventies.
I’m going to do the same thing that you would have been doing with those twenties over there,
but now I’m only going to do fifteen or twenty reps, but I don’t want my hands to open up.
When you do them, a lot of times, you start seeing this type of feel, people are losing
their grip. Get them wrapped up, thumb around, and just no matter what, I won’t allow it
to open, okay. When it starts to open, I have to sit it down and take a break. Now, over
time, your seventies turn into hundreds. It’s really, really cool. Now, when you’re doing
that with hundreds; fifteen and twenty reps without opening your hand, just think about
that. Just think of your squeeze at that point. It becomes scary. So, heavy, twenty reps and
this exercise, maybe once a week, twice a week at the most. Alright, good luck and keep
squeezing.
