Which Exercises Should I Use


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have been working on hand strength for a little while now. I did some bodybuilding in the past, but quit when my joints and left shoulder started giving me trouble. (I could no longer do chins without pain, open a door at waist level, or raise my left hand above my head.) That was a year and a half ago.

I have healed up, but still favour my left shoulder if I do benching, militiary presses, etc. I would like to do some auxiliary exercises to support my grip strength. What should I do for overall strength to help. Deads, squats, benches, tire flips, walk around with a sled? What do you do to help develop your overall strength to help with grip?

The basic compound exercises such as those you listed should help with overall strength and will also help improve your grip. Squats seem to give the grip a temporary boost, if you want to go for a gripper pr try it between sets.
