Pick 3 exercises


Recommended Posts

Hercules, this is a very thought-provoking question. Plate curls would be first on my list, and I would have to have pinching as second. Third, I guess that leaves grippers. Hard for me to decide my second and third choices, I'm glad I don't have to limit it to three in my training! Most people are probably going to go with their strengths on this one I would think, but we'll see what gets posted.

I have only been training grip off and on for a year, so I wouldn't recommend placing much faith in what I think.

I don’t think three cover all the aspects of grip subsequently I will mention all that I do instead.

1 Plate pinching

2 Plate curling

3 Wrist curls front and back

4 Grippers

5 Weaver stick

6 Obviously heavy lifting (DL, Pull up etc.)

If I had a wrist roller I would use that.

If I could only pick three it would be 1,3,4. 6 you can never avoid.

Luckily we don’t have to limit ourselves!!!!  ;)

1. Deadlifts lockouts with a thick bar.

2. Wrist curls

3. Pinch grip with plates.

Could I please add the grippers, not for the overall developpement but for the fun and challenge they procure.

Other than what every one else has said, I would only add one other:

Farmer's Walk with 2" or 2 1/2" handles.

1.  Farmer's Walk.  In my opinion, the best way to develop practical grip strength.  Using thick handles makes it even better.

2.  Wrist Roller.  Adds size to forearms, fairly good for wrists.  

3.  Pinching Plates.

1. The SW.  This machine created by Joe Kinney has made me experience unbelievable gains in my overall grip strength.

2.  Rolling Thunder.  One-handed thick bar lifting with a twist.

3.  Plate pinching.  Go as heavy as you can on this exercise.
