Best Answer

The best way to get your grip strength better is to perform exercises that stimulate muscle growth in your arms. These exercises are bench press, deadlift and overhead press. You can also do isolating exercises for your arms, such as pinching two plates together and holding, doing arm curls or buying a machine dedicated for grip strength.

The "Fingertip push up" is an outstanding exercise for increasing grip strength. I've done fingertip push ups. They work like MAGIC for building grip strength and overall upper body strength.
