How to Get That Hand Crushing Grip

A strong grasp works far beyond helping you open that tough jar of Nutella . It’s very important in bodybuilding because, well, how can you make a move and strengthen your muscles if you have a weak pair of hands?

However, you still need to develop your grasp because that’s when you know you’re hitting the right muscles properly when you’re working out. How do you achieve a hand crushing grip? Check this article by strength coach Dan Blewett on T Nation:
