    My grip is strong, but not even close to where i think it should be. Are their any exercises that you have done that has helped with opponent wrist control?

    I want to be able to grab my opponents wrist even when sweaty and control him. If i can achieve this, i will be able to set up my takedowns better. Thanks guys.. sorry for all the questions but i think this might benefit more people than just myself:icon_twis

    Sounds good in theory, only I think you might get arrested as a suspected paedo in this country. Where else apart from kids playgrounds do you find monkeybars?? I've always thought they are valid exercise tools for adults too.

    Farmers walk.

    Grip up a 45lb plate in each hand and just walk around as long as you can.

    Preferrably you want the smothest plate so there is less to grip.

    Also you can get a pike or stick and and put a rope through the middle, tie a weight to the rope and hold your arms straight and twist the pipe so it windes up the rope.

    I prefer using a towel and hanging it over a chin up bar rather than using a gi. I also find that just doing a regular kettlebell work out works the grip a lot too.

    I dunno, I see guys doing chinups in parks all the time. Same on scaffolding and such. And I almost never see kids on playground equipment.

    I suggest gi chin ups, or just general gi training. Your grips will improve dramatically.

    If there's a climbing gym in your town, join it. You'll develop your grip and the workout is never boring.
