How to maximise grip force

As the title goes really, basically want my grip to be like the bite of a pit bull

Already do dead lifts, farmer walks, heavy shrugs, plate grabs etc, any other suggestions or adjustments?

Cheers folks

Everytime you grab a barbell or dumbbell or handle, to Press/Pull /Raise/Lower.. anything ., squeeze it until your knuckles go white! How many times do we grab a weight/machine handle in a workout? A lot!

This is also a good way to maximise force production while having careyover to your grip.

Also look at getting some fat grips or switch to axle work if your gym has one

Struggle a lot with grip myself. Wrists ache/hurt on pull days!

What grip do you use when deadlifting? I believe working on forearms can help with grip, but could be wrong?

I've seen a couple of massive guys doing wrist curls (Forearm flat on a bench and a light dumbell - literally curl with your wrist) and presumed they were either grip/wrists or forearms.

Viking I was pretty stubborn with just a double overhand until recently, after posting a separate thread on here asking for advice on dead lift, since have incorporated opposing hand grips, and started doing a bit of hook work with low weight, and it's horrible

I do wrist curls when I train biceps tbh but I mainly just do it for the pump feeling 😂

Genetics play a big role in grip strength but there are those captains of crush style grippers you can use.
