The way to overcome this whilst simple in design is not simple in execution. Like anything that is going to serve you well in regards to strength it is going to mean you will need to push yourself hard in order to reach the level of genuine strength. A grip workout needs to address the various "spectrums" of grip. Ironmind has some good philosophies on what is required when it comes to overall grip strength. These are crushing, pinching to name just 2 and also comes wrist strength if you want to take it that next step further. There are a number of implements that will help you specifically train grip. One is the Captains of Crush grippers and the other is Fat Gripz. These are 2 particular implements that I really enjoy using to improve my grip.
Below is an example of a workout that can help improve your grip. There are a plethora of ways that you can do in order to improve your grip, it really is up to your imagination as to how best to improve the specific weaknesses you may have when it comes to grip.
The workout I commonly follow focuses on crushing and wrist strength and it looks like this:
- 3 x static Barbell holds of 70kg with Fat Gripz and overhand grip for time
- 5 x 10 behind the back wrist curls with 50kg barbell
- 3 x 10 reverse curls with 60kg's
- 1 x max reps no. 1 CoC gripper
- 3 x static holds of the no.2 CoC gripper for max time
- 1 x max reps no.1 CoC gripper
- The other one I may substitute is a 25kg bumper for pinch hold max time
