How to make hands bigger?

This thread isn't a joke the rest of me is ok but I got small hands, I want like big king kong hands especially when I clench a fist they look small. Would a heavy bag do anything for em?

If you have small hands, you got small hands. I too wish my hands were bigger, but there isn't shit anyone can do about it.

No amount of training will make your bones grow

I shook hands with Enson Inoue once. My hands were bigger than his, but his hand was like a rock. It was weird, he had more muscles in his hands than most people do on their whole arm. When he hits someone, it must feel like a sledgehammer. He's a BJJ blackbelt, and he lifts weights, so that's a good place to start. I noticed since I started grappling with a gi and doing sandbag workouts, my hands are a bit bigger, especially the fleshy bits above the thumb.

Thats not quite true. You hands do have muscles in. If you didn't, there would be no sideways movements of fingers on up and down.

This is true. You will be able to get marginly bigger hands but your bones wont grow and the growth will be limmted. Plus if the get bigger they will fill out not get longer or wider

Well realistically, look at any pro bodybuilder; their hands aren't going to look girly..
