In weight training grips and grasp, techniques are classified to help maximize the growth of the intrinsic and extrinsic muscles. Though the classifications are more general than those used in scientific taxonomy they are important to learn and understand for strength training and rehabilitation. Having particular weightlifting tools to selectively target anatomical areas is key. Having strong hands can change athleticism and change the outcome of competition.
In this blog the ball grip will be discussed:
The Ball Grip is used for holding spherical objects. When grasping with this grip the fingers exercise parallel pressure generating an envelope around the device. The hand curves around the sphere shape with as much of the palmar surface as it will allow.
A Spherical Wrist Roller for the Ball Grip
Lifting stones on the Pendulum Grip Cart are great for developing the Ball Grip. In a seated position lift the stone off the floor making sure the arms never touch the legs or the bench during the movement. The key is having the hands palm in the center of the stone so there is not a leverage advantage. Make sure all the fingers remain in contact with the cement ball during the curling action - squeeze and lift each repetition.
