Looking for information on the importance of a strong grip. I train for football and am always looking to improve my workout so that it carries over onto the field. How can grip training help me on the field?
I was looking at the IronMind website so I could get an idea into grip training. It says there’s crushing, pinching, supporting, and wrist/forearm. What exercises train these? Also, what about training the opposing extensors? It is important to train those as well to maintain balance correct? How do you train those?
I do a 3x/week full body routine. I already indirectly work my grip with a lot of compound exercises. Deads, straight-leg deads, db lunges, pull ups, rows…
Can a weak grip be a cause for failing to get a deadlift off the ground, or is a weak grip only a problem when you can’t hold the weight at lockout?
