Hand Strengthening

Post by emattson »

This forum has an excellent thread on jar training to strengthen the grip.

Another great way to strengthen the hands is kneading dough when making yeast rolls or bread. I tried it out when making rolls for the Easter dinner. My grandma, then another woman traditionally make rolls for the holiday dinners. They asked me to take over the tradition (I have the recipe). The dough is tough and stringy enough to give my fists a great workout, and I get healthy, delicious home-made bread out of it.

Any of you have projects or housekeeping workouts that you wish to describe?
