Why a Strong Grip is Important
When it comes to building muscle, everyone focuses on the arms and chest. Probably no one gives a damn about their hands, but take a second to think about how misguided that is. Your hands allow you to throw a ball, hang from a pull-up bar, and climb mountains. Virtually any and all upper body exercises start with you gripping some type of free weight.
You Can Perform Better and Bigger Lifts
With a firmer finger grip strength, you will be able to lift heavier weights in the gym. Finger strength exercise can give you a solid grasp that you can call upon to improve your training outcomes by increasing your strength, particularly in pulling movements such as rows, deadlifts, chin-ups, and pull-ups.
Better Resilience to Injuries
Having a wrist injury prevents you from doing so many things: Brushing your teeth, bathing, getting dressed, preparing meals, driving, using the restroom, performing work duties… Every day, people are sidelined because of damaged bones or tendons in the wrists.
