According to findings, wrestlers exhibit a sport-specific pattern of handgrip strength changes. Body height and hand length exhibited the strongest correlations with handgrip strength in wrestlers and in controls. The training adaptations of wrestling resulted in symmetrical handgrip strength development in both hands. These data serve to provide a descriptive profile of handgrip strength in wrestlers, to assist both coaches and health professionals for talent selection and/or development of training programs for performance enhancement and rehabilitation.
