Judo specific grip training

Hi, just wanted to pick the brains of the grip gurus on what would be the best exercice choice and order to develop a judo players grip strength. A m8 of mine is a national competitor and has a decent grip already from judo training and the pinching + lever holds we do but im wanting him to train the grip more seriously so am looking for a more optimal grip routine than the mentioned exercises. Thanks in advance.

    I would say that the best way of training your grip for Judo is to do a lot of Judo.

    yeah i realise that and he does alot of judo but we both a have a theory that if the grip is developed to levels beyond that acheived through only judo training then there maybe a certain amount of carry over to judo grip strength.

    quote:

    1:
    - Pinch of any kind
    - Thick bar holds, try and find a bar that mimics the thickness of a wrist, perhaps about a three inch bar?
    - Standard barbell static holds or better still farmers walk

    2:
    - levers of any kinds, three different levers
    - plate curls (no grip routine should be without them)
    - Sandbag clean and press, 100 rep sets with a relatively light weight to build some endurance into your hands and as a finisher




    nice thinking J5, I'd of never thought of that sandbag clean and pressing, makes perfect sense.

    Try getting athick piece of material (similar to the material worn during competitions) then is long enough to throw over a standard chining bar leaving enough free for each hand to hold.

    Grip the material as if in a competition and perform chins to mimic the pulling during fighting whilst incorporating the grip work. This will be as similar to judo as you can get without doing the judo.

    Decide on the optimal number of reps then add weights accordingly

    thanks dave we actually do something similar at the moment infact we do what u describe but use judo belts rather than Gi material but i could actually use an old Gi sleeve to make it more taxing on the grip as it will be much thicker. Cheers.
