If you are serious about working your grip there is literally ONE exercise I recommend, not those dumb scrunchie things, not that paleo stuff, you want to do the "rope and bar"TBBUK wrote: ↑Tue Jan 09, 2018 10:37 amThanks for the replies. I agree with Dylan that technique is important, but it only gets me when conditions are really gusty and messy. I'm going to try out some windsurfing gloves from a mate (current gloves are 2mm so pretty thin). I've spent a few months on and off working out with the hand grips, so think its time to go more hardcore in this area and introduce a greater range of activites (something like this: https://blog.paleohacks.com/forearm-exercises/). If anyone has tried other exercises successfully let me know. Cheers.
I come from a closed circuit motorcycle road racing background and yes I agree, the only solution is to relax your grip. Making arm muscles stronger only means you can hang on tighter when in fact you should be doing the opposite.Posrover wrote: ↑Tue Jan 09, 2018 1:27 pmJust taking a guess at this based on my motocross days but this sounds like a classic case of "arm pump" which some people go as far as having surgery to fix (fasciotomy). Typical when you have a death grip on the bar.
Check out some of the remedies some of those guys are doing. When I was starting to get it the only solution is to relax my grip.
