I have trained crushing grip, support grip and pinch grip tremendously over the years. I have some pretty impressive numbers and can blow many trained weight lifters away with grip power. I do find there are some issues still as I don't have too big hands. While my hands are strong, it still feels tough gripping the hands with a lesser trained, say, guy who has much bigger hands.
Even if said guy has weaker overall gripping muscles/crush, it seems harder to exert all of my gripping power against big hands, which in turn makes my grip less impressive if I do a power handshake with a lot of guys who have much larger hands. I can blow all of them away in grip, but the simple fact that their hands are bigger makes it tougher to illustrate grip because it's like trying to grip a fat bar to deadlift the same weight you would with a regular sized bar, as an example.
This is disconcerting and I was wondering if there is any way to get around this besides training grip even more to offset the size difference. I know the size alone affects this since someone with weaker big much bigger hands feels very tough to squeeze and show power, but someone with very powerful but small hands feel much more the opposite. I got joked at because I couldn't put this really tall guy's hand down because I can grip a 250 + lb. dumbbell and he couldn't he do half that weight, nor did he even seriously train. I am stronger, but it's not always obvious. Tips?
Example: 7 inch hand vs. 8+ inch hands, some of which are thicker. Interestingly, I have really powerful hands but they are not very thick at all. I can close a 250 lb. gripper but hands 4 inch wide.
