instead of doing regular chin ups....sling an old gi top over the chin up bar, then hold on to the lapel/collar whilst using it for chin ups....you can also hold the lapel like you would for a cross choke and do chin ups that way.

That is actually a good way to build your grip. Also purchase one of those therapy balls that you constanlly roll & squeeze in your hands. For those without gi's you can use a heavy towel or rope.

My last job I used to unscrew oil filters without the use of tools.

within weeks it felt like I could shatter glasses with my hands. Remember,.... it felt like that.
