How's your nukite conditioning like?

Generally our nukite conditioning includes Sanchin kata, which we perform thrice in every class. During the entire kata, you're expected to keep your nukite tight, and he periodically will come around (pre-COVID) to apply pressure to your hands to evaluate the strength of your nukite. Also, during hojo undo, we're expected to keep our kamae tight, which results in a strong isometric contraction of the flexors and extensors in the forearm. We also occasionally will do fingertip push-ups as well.

As far as how is MY nukite conditioning? As I mentioned, I'm comfortable striking a heavy bag, but I am not ready to try breaking boards with a nukite. I've seen videos of Uechi-Ryu masters doing so, but they've gone through a lot more hand/finger conditioning than I'm willing to do.
