IronMind implements are a great way to improve your grip. Here I’m using a pinch-grip block, but there are many more tools that you can use.
There are two ways to incorporate these into your workout depending on what phase of training you’re in:
a) Extensive Phase: 3-4 sets of 4-6 reps holding for 6-8 seconds
b) Intensive Phase: 10 sets of 1 rep (singles) holding for 8 seconds
Between reps, place the weight on the ground for a second to release the tension, then go again. Train the non-dominant side first and match it with the other side.
You can do this type of training at the end of your workout 2-3 times a week, but don’t use the same implement each session (rotate them).
I learned these methods 18 years ago from the late Charles Poliquin at a seminar in Arizona, and I still use them today. You should too!
