    Hey there,
    I will left here a video of the exercises that I normaly do for grip strenght, but I was hoping for some different exercises that you use or have seen, that aren't in the video. Anyone?

    I've gotten good results doing double stick drills with short lengths of black pipe.

    Doing my cantilever load exercises (link below) really pounded my grip in ways it hasn't seen before - actually had to switch to a smaller diameter pole after a few, as grip had become a limiting factor and I could feel some old tendonitis acting up.

    Even with a smaller diameter pole the grip gets a serious workout same time as the rest, and from a variety of angles.

    The 3 Types of Grip and the 8 Ways to Train Them

    Types of Grip Training and When to Use Them
    Grip training goes well beyond squeezing grippers or stress balls. After all, there’s more than one kind of grip strength:
    • The Crush Grip is the grip between your fingers and your palm—the one you use for shaking hands and crumpling beer cans.
    • The Pinch Grip is the grip between your fingers and your thumb. This can be further subcategorized into individual fingers + thumb grip.
    • The Support Grip is the ability to maintain a hold on something for a while—think pull ups or long and productive shopping trips.
    The type of grip training you do depends completely on its applicability to what you want to accomplish.

    I like the Thor's Hammer exercise. Not sure if it actually improves performance in anything but I had a pain in my left wrist that went away when I started doing it.
