These need to be developed along with the flexor/pronators, but most neglect them. I recommend three key exercises to help maintain balance between forearm compartments.

And this is perfectly fine if you’re just looking to exercise your hand a bit – and stave off carpel tunnel – but these cheapo plastic brands aren’t going to ever build real strength. I've found through experience that the number one way to develop flexor/pronator mass or, if you're not careful, biceps tendinitis and pain, is by using a high-strain grip in a full range of motion exercise. This usually involves using high resistance with a pinch or open-hand grip. But then I came upon something that really caught my interest: Captains of Crush grippers, made by a company called IronMind.So, when someone says to me, "It's only mental," I think, "What do you mean 'only' mental?" Matt hits the nail on the head with this. Incidentally, I've never met Danny Dino in person, but he's an example of someone who seems brimming with confidence that he will conquer the CoC No. 3. I know some other guys who can't seem to get it right between the ears or in the gut - and to the extent that you might not have gotten the physical genetic gifts to make this a cakewalk, you'd better plan on tapping the cognitive-emotional elements to the max if you are serious about succeeding. Ironmind now has 11 different gripper options, but the core grippers are the #1, #2, #3, and #4, which range from 140 pounds of pressure to close to 365 pounds of pressure. Only 5 people in the world are documented to have closed the #4. Currently, 5 of the options are “tweeners” to help you bridge the gap from one gripper to another, like the No. 1.5 to help you go from the #1 to #2.

Wow, what a humbling experience. I thought that my grip was decent, and I couldn’t even manage to get out more than 6 reps with a comparatively easy model.At the gym, pulling heavy weight requires holding heavy weight, and wrist strength is required to stabilize a heavy bench press. Weak wrists can't push heavy loads.
