Standing Olympic Plate Hand Squeeze’s work the forearm flexors and improve grip strength.

Grab a forty-five-pound Olympic plate by the ridge in each hand.

With the plates at arm’s length at your sides with your palms facing in, lower the plates until your fingers are nearly extended but still capable of holding the weights. Inhale and close your hands, raising the plates a few inches. Continue doing this until your grip commences to give out.

Note: You can do this exercise with both hands at the same time or do the exercise one hand at a time.
