Regarding "putting on size".

Putting on weight
http://forums.army.ca/forums/index.php/topic,98486.0.html

On to my question about handgrip work outs. My school gym has a handgrip "thing" (tells you how strong your grip is). It says my grip (with one hand) is about 30lbs. How on earth do I get this to 75kg? Should this come naturally? Or is it something I have to work out?

Start doing tons of pushups; move onto fist pushup, then finger pushups - start doing inclined when you start noticing strength gains...Do pullups and chinups - lift weights. If you're strong, one day, you'll be able to do head first- feet up pushups on your fingers.

A quick Google of your size and weight produces this.  MMA Fighter Dominic Cruz http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dominick_Cruz

Do you think he would be unfit for the CAF?

Your inefficiency at grip strength may have to do with your technique.  The power in your hand is in your fingers, near the tips, not your palms.  You're not short, so you should have at least average hands, unless your hands are freakishly small.

Try holding the calipers closer to your fingertips, resting in the last joint, or at least near it.  I bet your results improve immediately.

FYI, the 75kgs is both hands added together. 

There, my improve morale effort is done for the day.  I can go back to being a prick now!!!

There are, literally, hundreds of posts on bulking up, slimming down, strength training, cardio training, weight training and, yes, grip strength training.

All you have to do is search.
