Grip and Wrist Strengthening Exercises

Certain grip strengthening exercises will not only prevent injury when you bowl, but help you perform better at the lanes! These exercises range from involving muscles in your hand, to muscles in your forearm. Strong forearm muscles allow your wrist to flex more forcefully and grip to contract harder.

Here are a few that you can try:

Farmer's Walk

Pick up a set of dumbbells at the gym, and walk as far as you can before setting them down. Increasing the weight, or walking further will increase the difficulty, and also strengthen your forearm and wrist muscles.


This exercise is great to work on your grip strength! Grab a weighted barbell on the ground, and stand up. The barbell should then be just above your knee. However, be careful to keep your lower back tucked in, and tension in your body throughout the lift.

Wrist Curls

This is an exercise that you will commonly see practiced at the gym. While holding a light-weight dumbbell (while slowly working up to a higher weight), keep your forearm horizontal while flexing your wrist up, and then back down. Focus on form, not speed!

Try performing reverse wrist curls as well, which is simply doing the same exercise with your palms facing towards the floor.

We also have a lot of grip accessories to help you improve your bowling game.
