Are you looking to improve your overall grip strength?

When working on building your grip strength, it is important to incorporate different exercises that challenge your grip such as holding onto uneven surfaces, adding in an element of dynamic stability and simple isometrics. Improving your grip strength can also lead to further strength gains in exercises such as a deadlift (assuming it is your limiting factor). .

Grab a hold of a kettlebell by grasping it by the bell (upside down). This exercise can be done with either one or two hands at a time. If you do not have access to a smaller kettlebell like in the video, simply perform this exercise with a smaller dumbbell.

Pick up and hold onto the middle of the barbell. Keep the opposite arm out to the side for support. Take small steps and avoid having the hips shift side to side. Minimize any movement in the barbell at all times to emphasize your grip strength.
