    I think it's effective.

    I used a bucket of rice. I did not stick with doing it though.

    Nice think about it is that you can train all directions of movement.

    Oh yeah. I think it works.

    It doesn't hurt to try it. I didn't continue it cause I have a bit of a wrist injury that got bothered by it.

    Honestly for strinking sports I might recommend splitting wood with a 8 lb maul. Just for striking power and hand strength. And ironically that didn't bother my wrist.

    What about progressively moving on to heavier and heavier girls?

    The best benefit of using a bucket of sand will be the ability to work your extensors. This can also be done using heavy-duty rubber bands.


    Sorry for the serious answer.

    I have used Fat Gripz in the past and it works. The only downfall is that they probably worked to well. My grip strength was too exhausted and overtrained when it came to back work and deads

    Never heard of that. I do 2 or 3 finger pull ups using a training board. Trying to work my way up to this.
