Try the following exercises to maintain and develop the many muscles that are around your wrists.
 
Its always worth spending a few minutes warming up the wrist joint with some simple rotational movements, stretching the muscles after you have finished your exercises.

If you plan to exercise other upper body muscles, make sure that you do these before your wrist workout, as you will find that your grip strength will be weaker for a few hours.

If your a keen sports person, then avoid doing any wrist work on the day prior to your sport, especially in games such as golf and racquet sports, as you may find that the training will reduce your ability to play well.

A little and often is generally the best approach if you need greater grip strength - simpley squeezing a tennis ball for 5 minutes a day will give rapid gains.
