Just do the routine, that's I got it. I didn't really have a problem with any thing except the key bend, which I can do now, with a skinny key.

If you seriously want to build a solid grip strenth, try
www.ironmind.com
they sell grippers starting at 60 pounds of resistance (maybe a little stronger then storebought) all the way to 360 pounds.. which only 4 or 5 people have closed.. and everything inbetween along with all types of other grip toys.
Also could check out
www.gripboard.com
To talk to grip enthusiasts.. Take care,
Dan-

This has been covered in many Liquid Metal threads and I see it was mentioned here.

You don’t need finger or lower arm strength. There are no special exercises required. All you need to do is practice the moves. The more you practice, the better you will become at the routine and additionally your hands will become accustomed to the moves.

Don’t over do it however, you need to keep your hands soft and non-callused. If you perform close-up magic, you want attractive hands. The spectators may not enjoy focusing on calluses, cuts and rough hands.

I agree that a close up magician should take care of his/her hands, manicured and looking nice, but I do hope that the main focus is the performers face and personality. Thats the true magic, the tricks are just by products... I hope that makes sense... I am not quite able to put into words what I am trying to convey.
