All women can benefit from a stronger grip. A stronger grip improves everything in the gym and in life.

2. Improved Full Body Strength

Picking up a heavy object and walking with it is a primitive strength movement. By getting stronger with this your whole body gets stronger.

If you see someone in the gym lifting heavy but they are using gloves or straps they are limiting their full body strength.  You are much better off developing a strong grip and this can be done using something as simple as weighted carries.

3. Improved Mental Strength

Picking up something heavy and carrying it is very empowering physically and mentally.

Carrying your own body weight (or more) is a sign of pure strength and can benefit you both physically and mentally.
