Grip strength and grip endurance is a big question for people getting into Brazilian Jiu-jitsu.
I’ve received questions from countless BJJ practitioners about how to build better grip strength because during their matches or rolls in the gym they feel like their grip goes out.
Today’s question comes from KevMed who says that despite weight lifting. He lacks grip strength when he is training Brazilian Jiu-jitsu.
In this video I briefly touch on the idea of building stronger grips and focus more on how to make your grips last longer as a White Belt.
As a White Belt I can almost guarantee that KevMed is grabbing everything with a death grip.
I say this because I know as a BJJ White Belt. . . I did. And as a coach I see this over and over again with my new White Belts.
The newer people in the gym will hold grips as tight as they can and will wear their hands out in a minute or so and then are left with nothing.
So if you’re a newer White Belt or someone who just finds themselves gripping everything as tight as possible. Then I hope this tip is helpful!
