Training The Hands To Get Strong

Handgrip strength has been identified as one limiting factor for manual lifting and carrying loads. An object’s weight, the actual surface material being lifted and visual cues have a great deal to do with the digital forces we apply when we are lifting it. Lifting and carrying loads is the essence of strength training. For an athlete to reach his potential he or she must Get their hands Strong

All our fingers can contribute to the total force we can emit when grasping an object even the grip span affects the outcome. Training with different grip tools, varying widths as well as concentrating on individual and pairs of digits maximizes hand strength, which is reflected in total body strength.

Below the athlete begins the exercise using a ‘ball grip wrist roller.’  When the exercise is completed he uses different finger combinations on the Rogers Rope Pull to strengthen each digit.
