Grip & Wrist Strength Series

Adding in weights as part of your regular workout routine is crucial to being a better ultimate player. In addition to doing power movements like squats and deadlifts, it’s important to add in some balancing work and small muscle work.

Part of that small muscle work deals with wrist and grip strength.

By increasing your grip and wrist strength, you will see 2 main benefits:

  1. In the gym, you will be able to push and pull more weight by having a stronger grip and wrist and you will therefore see more benefits from your workouts.
