Squeezing hands when playing strokes

Do you guys tend to squeeze your thumb and index finger together tighter when you're playing faster and bouncing the sticks off the head? I've noticed that I do this and I don't know whether or not I should be doing this. Thanks.

i dont think tightening up is ever a good thing. You should relax your hands and wrists as much as possible. If you feel yourself tightening up, try to make a conscious effort to stop it and relax. I guess the only reason to really tighten your grip is if you feel the drumsticks are falling out of your hands.
