Anyone have a recommendation for tools/exercises to use for wrist and forearm strength for baseball players? Ben

Geoff do you have a wrist bar yet? To me that’s #1 by far.
I feel everything else crucial can be done with dumbbells. After a wrist bar, I’d ask Ben Clarfield what he recommends.
Pronation/supination and external rotators have been GOLD for baseball elbows and shoulders, like literally worth gold for them.
And Geoff please report back what Ben C says other than pronation-supination is terms of importance.
Data is everywhere. Actual hierarchy of importance of days is scarce.
Pronation/supination has been my go-to. A #2 doesn’t jump to my mind. So I’d like to know what he says. Thanks!

-That rice bucket drill that @emersonpavezzi shared
-pipe like Austin mentioned or the atg wrist bar for all the directional flexion and extension work
-grippers like Captains of Crush, gradually working up to bodyweight for athletes I believe?
-pair gripper work with the little extensor bands where you open your hand against resistance

@imDrake757 great advice. Rice does seem like a “sled” for wrist.
I personally then think of Zottman curls as eccentric knee flexion. We used rice at the original ATG
And had… Grippers, rolling Thunder, block grips, wrist rollers. But my go-to was the Wrist Bar aka Thor’s Hammer. Wrist Bar + Zottman I felt have significant adaptation to more bulletproof wrists and elbows. But I didn’t have a strong feeling beyond that.
