Captains of Crush grippers

Post by Jclem23 » Wed Dec 25, 2013 1:52 pm

I got three captains of crush grippers for christmas today: the trainer, the number 1, and the number 2. However, I couldn't even close the trainer all the way. I could get the grippers to be parallel, but i couldn't get them to touch. I always knew that my grip was really weak, but I didn't realize that it was this weak. Should I just attempt to do partial reps with the trainer until i can close it all the way? Or should i buy the guide/sport one?

I'd say both. If you can get a lighter one, use that for volume, but do the trainer for lower volume work.

There are three type of grip strength.

You may have more grip strength in another area.

Thanks for the responses. I have been doing partial reps with the trainer and have already seen improvements in my grip strength. I am very close to closing it.
