"The Trojans have found a new and more efficient way to train grip strength. We have incorporated Grip4orce with many of our auxiliary movements and the studentathletes, as well as our strength staff, are very impressed with how quickly Grip4orce develops the forearms. Grip4orce is extremely versatile and easy to use. With the time saved from not having to perform dedicated grip exercises we can spend more time on other aspects of our speed and strength program."
Here's a video showing some hand grip exercises
Working grip exercises into your program can also aid in preventing certain pain syndromes from chronic inflammation to tendonitis, which is generally caused by neglecting certain muscle groups and overuse of others.

Hand grip exercises help improve your dexterity, enable you to get bigger lifts, as well as enhance your later life quality as you age. We hope that this post has opened you up to the importance of hand grip exercises and shown you how easy it is to do these for extended amounts of time. You can start with a once-a-week routine for two weeks, and build up to more when you feel the exercises getting a bit too easy for you.
Most people are oblivious as to how to build their hand grip strength, and silly wrist raises won’t cut it to build strong hands. Ergo, allow me to introduce to you 3 hand grip exercises that will build your grip and hand strength and thus have a direct carryover to your ability to hoist bigger weights: rack holds, plate pinches and one-arm rows.One-arm rows should be included on the day of the week that you do your back workout; alternatively, you can do this hand grip exercise on the day that you do most of your pulling work (e.g. deadlift day). You should aim to do 1 rep more every week until you get to 20 reps for each of the 2 sets; then add 10lbs more and start again from 12 reps. See the video below for an illustration on how to do this exercise:While one-arm rows develop much more than your grip, they are a very rare hand grip exercise that will allow you to build your grip unilaterally. Using a bench for support, place a loaded dumbbell on the left side of the bench. Bend down while keeping your back flat and parallel to the floor, and grab the dumbbell with your left hand; use your right hand and knee for support on the bench. Pull the dumbbell up to the chest, then return the dumbbell to the floor (one rep). Do 12 reps on your left side and then another 12 reps for your right side (place dumbbell on right side of bench and use right hand). Do 2 sets, with one set being 12 reps done one both sides.The answer may be obvious to some but there are some reasons to use grip exercises which you may not think about. You grip a handle of some kind during most exercises. This holds true whether you use machines or free weights.Overall, these 3 hand grip exercises will directly build your grip strength like no other. They are exercises that require no extraordinary apparatuses than those that you’d find in a conventional gym, so these exercises are quite convenient. Work them hard and you will be rewarded with a much stronger grip that will help you hoist bigger weights in other exercises!If you think you do not need a strong grip think again. Recreational weight lifters, athletes in many sports, certain professions can benefit from grip exercises which strengthen your grip.
