A Little Bit About Me

I’m fascinated by calisthenics, gymnastics, & pole fitness – I’ve been a recreational powerlifter & martial artist more than a decade. Being passionate about strongman training & weightlifting, I’d love to discuss about those topics with you.

First & foremost I’m interested in functional strength itself & in overall approach..
..I care a little less about proportional illusion of it.

Nevertheless both are very important – Naturally, you want to look good as much as you want to be strong!
In athleticism I value mental toughness & fortitude as well as physical abilities – One can’t go without another. You’re only as strong as our weakest link is – YOUR GRIP

Who doesn’t want to have a powerful grip?
Honestly, every great athlete has one..

Why is Grip Strength so Important?

Let’s Make a Reality Check

It is the very first point of contact between you & the object you want to pick up.  Your grip is incredibly important – And not only in few exercises, but almost
in all of them. You have to grab even a squatting bar with considerable force if you want to make that exercise possible for you..

Having grip strength is tremendously effective in any physique, yet training grip happens to be one of the most overlooked aspects in regular training routines.
Try not to become one of those individuals & fall into that category – Try & Improve your grip since it has many benefits to it.

One thing is having strong hands, which is great..  BUT other thing is preventing injuries & having healthy hands, & that should be your top priority no matter
who you are. Functional strength can come in handy in infinite number of situations, for infinite number of times.

Technically, there are four primary movements that you should focus on the most to improve your overall grip, finger, hand & forearm strength:

  • Crushing grip – Grabbing & squeezing an object with your fingers – It’s the most basic hand movement, where you’ll be moving your fingers towards your palm
  • Pinching grip – Movement that involves your thumb to pinch grip an object – The idea is to always use your thumb in combination of any of your other 4 fingers
  • Supporting grip – Also called static grip, that focuses on holding onto something as long as you can while maintaining it in the exact same position the whole time
  • Extending grip – Complex extensor movements, in your wrists & fingers, to adjust your grip position, move opposite directions & to provide you with muscle balance
