    Search, my friend. This has been asked MANY times before.

    (Hint: Anything that involves holding heavy weight in your hands for a period of time will build your grip.)

    deadlifts, shrugs, rows, plate pinches...i'd say the biggest thing for me is working for a drinking water company, carrying 5 gallon plastic and glass jugs in each hand and walking with them.

    What's worked best for me is heavy deadlifts and rack pulls, heavy barbell shrugs, and heavy double-overhand barbell rows, with some farmers holds/walks thrown in there.
