To improve your grip, try the following:

  • Grip a water polo ball in one hand — raise slowly above your head and then back down. 5 times with each hand;
  • Using a pull-up bar, hold yourself at the top of the bar and then slowly (ie. counting to 5) lower yourself to a full extension — repeat 10 times
  • Do 3 sets of 20 “close grip” push ups — ie. place your hands beneath your chest instead of in line with your shoulders
  • Do 3 sets of 10 “jump and clap” push ups — both hands and feet must be off the ground when you clap
  • When you finish your coffee in the morning, crush the cup in your first (while grunting)
