Get Strong Fingers!

Go buy a stress ball and squeeze it throughout the day. Rather than just using your whole hand to squeeze the ball, try different exercises. Squeeze the ball with your thumb and point finger. Then to your middle finger and thumb, ring and thumb, and pinky and thumb. Also, put the ball between your thumb and pointer finger and squeeze. Continue this with your point and middle, middle and ring, ring and pinky.

Do these each ten times and as you get better add repetitions. Strong fingers will allow you to control the ball better when dribbling and avoid finger injuries. Plus, you’ll be able to beat all your friends in thumb wars!

Here's a product that will strengthen your hand by forcing you to dribble with your fingers:

This drill will also help you strengthen your fingers:
