Enhance Your Grip Strength to Enhance Your Gains

You are only as strong as your grip. When trained properly, greater grip strength leads to gains in lifting power as well as endurance/stamina. Just ask any StrongMan, Powerlifter and even your MMA grapplers.

To strengthen your grip, you must go beyond strengthening your hands. Follow this grip-centric program, and you’ll be sporting forearms like Popeye and tearing phonebooks galore (if you can find one).
