Men in general have stronger hand-grip strength than women, even when taking into acount lean body mass. Females have different distinct features in hand size and shape and men on average have greater hand length and hand breadth than women. Since hand size relates to grip strength having longer bones, longer muscles, hence a greater number of contractile units, that is, sarcomeres gives the majority of men more than a mechanical edge. This advantage is without discussing moment arms, tendon lengths and proportions of the forearms and wrists. The male advantage is such that even female National elite athletes rarely surpass the 50th percentile in hand dynomometry of untrained or not specifically trained men.
Though the hand-grip strength of males and females differ from one another the good news is that all can change their strength dramatically. If you measure a population of athletes regardless of gender that do not emphasize grip training, you will find the preferred hand will often be about 10% stronger than the non-preferred hand. By addressing and changing this strength deficit an athletes’ overall body strength will change as well.
Erase this 10% deficit by filling your Pendulum Grip Cart with an assortment of tools to address the power, ball, hook, pinch and precision grips, abduction, adduction and wrist extension. Attacking each way we handle an object to assure the associated musculature is maximally developed is the best way to Get Strong.
