I’m looking for some input on training for grip strength. My specific problem is I want better ability to palm a basketball. I’m trying to enter some dunk contests this summer and I think I have the vert for it, but I miss dunks (especially windmills) due to losing the ball. My hands are plenty big (even for a 6’4" guy), but they are pathetically weak. I figured I’d ask some of the powerlifters/strongmen on the board if they had any advice for me here.
I’m going to buy the COC trainer grips and I’ve started doing some pinch gripping. I don’t have a fat bar to bench with, but I have one that I can do some other stuff with- I guess I probably could bench with it, but I don’t know if it’s long enough to rack. I figure what I need to work on most is supporting and crush gripping.
Anybody got advice for me??
