Grip Strength Revisited

In a previous post I discussed how to build grip strength. After a thumb dislocation at the martial arts cluband some healing time, I’m back at the routine – but I’ve made two major changes: I’ve cut the number of sets in half, and upped the weight dramatically.

The change has alleviated pain from overwork, and the routine seems to be just as effective.

I have also discovered a great way to keep the muscles of the hand balanced.  On off days I use a rubber band around my fingers as
you see here. A dozen reps 3 times a day.
