Increasing Grip Strength

I have a quick question, do you think using lifting gloves for carries and then on barbell rows and shrugs would have a similar effect as using a towel to increase the girth of the grip… or does is make it easier rather than harder despite the girth being increased in your palm?

I personally hate my short fingers for no being able to do the all praised hook grip, but that’s all. I don’t thing it will make any difference. + there are tons of better ways to increase grip strength, yes? Farmer’s walk, ropes pull ups.

I’m definitly doing farmer walks in my conditions routine… I just have a pair of these thing that I haven’t worn since my ex stopped bitching about rough hands a few years ago… and I was thinking I could use them to make it more challenging if it would actually do that…
