Having Fun Grip Training @ Zach’s Underground Strength Gym


I think a lot of folks underestimate the power of having a strong, crushing grip. Most importantly, having a strong grip can pay big dividends with lifting more weight, or carrying more odd everyday objects. Heck, I realized the benefits of having a strong sturdy grip just the other day, at the airport.

By having a strong grip, I observed how much easier it was to carry my baggage in both hands, while walking “extensively” through a few big airports in one day. (Houston-Bush/ Hartsfield in Atlanta, and Newark).(Let’s not even talk about how what should have been a 3 hour flight, turned into a 12 hour expedition…yet I digress).

By the way ladies, don’t think having a strong grip is just a guy thing. In fact, think about how much easier it would be to pick up your little ones, the groceries, and by all means, if you’re anything like my wife and carry your “life” in your purse, you have to have a strong grip. I love you, honey ;-D

Developing a powerful grip can also transfer into more sports specific activities, such as baseball, basketball, football, and MMA (just imagine what a crushing grip can do for your clinch game in Muay Thai or Brazilian Jui-Jitsu?).

I will demonstrate how to get a more power grip in upcoming videos. For now, enjoy watching my fellow Underground Strength Coaches Rick Daman, Belton Lubas, and myself try to grip 30 pounds of rounded evil at Zach Even-Esh‘s recent Underground Strength Coach certification in New Jersey. Yeah, it’s not as easy as you may think.

Let me know what you think, by leaving a comment below. BTW, don’t you dare miss Belton’s demo of the “O” face at the end.
