Improving your Grip Strength with the PKB


July 26, 2017

Grip endurance and strength is not only important for gym rats and athletes, but also for everyday activities. The longer you can hold onto things, i.e. shopping bags, boxes, furniture, without fatiguing the less you'll ask for help and the more you'll impress your friends :)

That said, grip endurance is also a general indicator of overall physical strength. If the first thing to fatigue or prevent you from finishing a workout is your forearms, you've limited the rest of your body's gains to one muscle group.  In other words, you're just as good as your grip strength!  

"The more grip strength and endurance you have, the more work you can put-in during training."

Below are my 6 key exercises to maximize grip strength with the PKB, one of the most versatile pieces of equipment in my car, closet, home gym - everywhere!
