    excersises to increase my hand/grip strength?

    what can i do to increase my and grip strength? i know about reverse curls and behind the back wrist curls and winding up a rope tied to a weight...but they don't seem to be increasing my hand or grip strength.

    and those little grip machines for you to squeeze on at like walmart and academy suck they don't do squat.

    I started deadlifting recently and my grip strength really shot up. You could also try doing wrist curls...

    In summary:

    1. Heavy holds.
    2. Heavy hangs.
    3. Direct work.
    Bodybuilding is 60% training and 50% diet. Yes that adds up to 110%, because that's what you should be giving it. Change the inside, and the physique will follow.

    ^^^^ this.

    Do worry about grip strength. If your compounds are increasing in weight then your forearms will follow.

    This is true, do not spend to much time on it. Maybe just a few grip excercises at home on your off days or at the end of a workout.
