Here's the Real Scoop on Ligament Strength and the Hands
Strength authors concentrated specifically of the tendon strength of
Here's a great passage from one of the best known of the old time
writers, George Jowett:
"...You may wonder how your wrist will become improved by any forearm
practice , so
before we go any further, lat me enlighten you upon the fact that the
taper off into ligaments. The weaker the muscles, the more stringy and
these cables. The stronger and bulkier they build up, the thicker the
become. As these ropes of connection taper off at the wrist, it is
natural condition that the wrist size should be increased.
When I commenced heavy exercise, I had only a seven inch wrist, just
size as I have said, but to-day my wrist measures every bit of eight an
inches... The sinews that have massed upon the wrist are very heavy..."
That was published back waaaaaaaay back in 1926.
Here's a more recent passage by an interesting fellow named Mike Brown:
"... [John Y] Smith's hands looked like iron claws. Years of one handed
with thick handled barbells had so thickened Smith's finger tendons in
of his hand that those same tendons stood out like the webbing on a
duck's feet... "
I can say from experience that both of these men speak the truth.
Years of exercising the way I do has thickened my wrist sinews as
talks about and I also have the "webbing" effect on the back of my
Mike Brown talks about. In my opinion, you can train your grip and
ligament development...but not for long. At some point you don't want
the cable to
be weaker than the crane. Know what I mean Vern?
