Did you know that grip strength is a strong predictor of mortality meaning that it helps to predict your risk of getting certain diseases such as heart disease, respiratory disease, cancer, and even death!

Two studies last year showed that people with weaker grip strength than their counterparts had a greater onset of all of the aforementioned diseases over the course of 7 years.

So grab something heavier than you’re used to and hang onto it for as long as you can to help push that grip strength along and help you to live a healthier lifestyle!
