    Unfortunately for me, a lot of my DNA comes from a little 5'2" asian lady. I have small forearms, tiny wrists, and small hands. All that = pussy grip. When I clean, dead lift, etc, my grip always gives out before anything else. Even in bjj it's hard for me to hold onto certain grips.

    A few weeks ago a trainer friend of mine turned me on to these.

    they're a little pricey, but if you have a shitty grip it's fucking worth it. after a few weeks i've already notice a huge difference. i throw them on the pull up bar and on dumb bells and it makes it sooo much harder on your fingers and forearms.

    i just thought i'd share in case anyone cares :dunno:

    i might be able to get a free pair, in which case we could have a cage crew contest for them like the fight soap.

    i heard good things about them. Have you tried CoC's? i wanna get some but i'm not sure if it will translate to crushing grip strength or endurance type of grip strength.

    My bjj grip strength has skyrocketed from kettlebell workouts with 44 lb bells. The handle on them is huge.

    As a totally different alternative you could go down to the local climbing gym and do some bouldering, that will defiantly strengthen your grip.

    CoC's will make you good at closing CoC's.

    There is a huge thread that covers all aspects of grip strength and how they apply to various sports in the F&N archives.

    Tyler grips are great for bar holding strength so I would assume they would have some carryover to MMA.

    A grip training handjob is one type I'd really not like. Nothing says I love you like a crushed urethra.
