    I have been training in no-gi BJJ 5-6 times/week for about three months now and have been waking up with pain and stiffness in my finger joints.

    Is this something that i will get over the longer i train? Good thing i'm not a musician,neurosurgeon, dentist or sniper

    Please Respond.

    Your tendons need to get used to it. You can't just jump into workouts that are finger-intensive. It will get better though, no worries.

    :ugh:

    You're body will get used to it. Start strengthening your grip outside of class. Plenty of info all over about all kinds of exercises. I also have a feeling that you don't workout. Look into starting.

    Go to REI ask for the blue donut of power. Trust me, they will know what you are talking about. It is used by rock climbers to strengthen hands, forearms and fingers. It is way better than anything else I have tried. I have pretty bad hands and this thing made them way better.

    Be sure to stare into your opponent's eyes as you grip his penis.
