Which one is the better choice for combat athletes?
I didn't know titty twister was a legit move in MMA.
For pinch grip? No
Pinch block probably. The hub is a nitch event/feat imo, and pony clamps negate the fingers and aren't easy to load up. My opinion on grip strength for athletes hasn't changel though: suppination/pronation rotational levering with a 2" od bar is king.
sure. heavy clubs train every aspect of grip, wrist and forearm strength. plus, they teach you to activate the whole chain from shoulder girdle to the finger tips. i sometimes turn them upside down and grip the thick head to completely fry my hands.
if you work up to using 10 kg or more per hand, you will notice the whole grip thing goes up.
i did all the plate pinch, rolling thunder, finger/wrist curls and levering mumbo jumbo for years just to find out that heavy clubs and simple towel pullups are all you ever need.
Ive got both, they work the hands pretty equally. Hub works the fingers more, put the block hits the palms more.
So the hun doesn't hit the thumb as much?
I'd say the hub has a slight edge.
