What does everybody think about fingertip pushups and gripper combination?

When i do fingertip pushups i like to squeeze the surface of what my fingers are on as hard as i can when doing them.
I drive my fingertips into the ground gripping it.

What does everybody think of this?

lots of people do fingertip push ups, and lots of people would say their safe enough. i personally think theyly murk your finger joints in the long term because of the pressure on your fingers while their hyperextended. im sure some will disagree with me but each to their own.

I think it will help, but have some small carry over. If anything I would take a tennis ball, make a small hole to let the air out, and pinch grip that to work on the fingertips and pads.
