    Maybe you should just train some Brazilian jiu jitsu! If you don't already, anyway. My grips are not bad and I've seen a sizable increase in my forearms since I started training almost two years ago (and commensurate improvement in grip strength). One thing people I train with do is throw their kimono over the pull up bar and hold onto the fabric to do pull ups - so you're suspended from the fabric, that is, not just holding onto a fabric-wrapped bar. Never tried it but some of my training partners have incredible, controlling, extremely frustrating grips. Not sure if it would translate 100% to lifting, but it's a great work out anyway.

    That was actually one of the conclusions of the blog post I linked to. It's good for a lot of things aside from grip strength.

    Agreed. I actually looked at your link but was at work so didn't read it all the way through. If it concludes that bjj is boss then it sounds pretty solid!
