Using a Power Grip on the Pendulum Rope Pull
The hand has its greatest gripping strength when utilizing a ‘power grip’, that is squeezing with all five fingers. When the thumb is negated, grip strength has the second greatest capability called the ‘hook’ grip.
Grip strength without using the middle finger, ring finger or little finger all make the hand’s strength much lower. The little finger’s contribution to loss tends to have a greater effect on the dominant hand, as opposed to the non-dominant hand.
The most important contributor to overall hand strength is the middle finger. Next are the ulnar digits, the combination of the ring and little fingers. Exclusion of the ulnar digits when gripping can lead to roughly a 35 to 70% drop in hand strength.
Having every finger strong and continually working to develop stronger hands can be a difference maker in athletic competition and life’s work. Make every digit count to keep success at your fingertips.
