The hand provides sensory information to the brain; temperature, texture, shape, form of objects, application of necessitated strength and more. There are significant correlations between grip strength, nutritional status, health, disease, longevity, upper arm circumference, bone mineral content, cognitive decline and overall muscular strength. Grip training is important and needs to be an integral part of all resistance exercise programs.
