Guess how many of these – € – I would pay to increase my gripper performance? Answer: A lot! I made a great purchase when I bought Adam Glass’s (and Brad Nelson) Grip and Rip 2.1 DVD earlier this year.
This gripper workout was the best I’ve ever had in terms of closing 4 hard grippers in the same workout. 3 of the grippers I’ve never closed before this workout. I’ll be sending them out to get rated by Chris Rice this week.
WARMUP: -Trainer-x5-both hands, -#1×1-both hands, -#2×1-both hands, -easy #3×1-both hands
- 160lb #3×1-right hand
- T7x1-right hand *Notes: Super solid close and a 2-second hold. Knew it was going to be a very strong gripper day.
- RB300x1-right hand *Notes: 1st time closing this RB300! Bought it some months back.
- Hard #3.5×1-right hand *Notes: 1st time closing this hard #3.5! Have had this on loan for more than a year! Felt great to finally close it. Todd Coenen’s been very patient letting me have this on an extended loan. Held it shut for 2 seconds. I always thought that if I finally closed it the handles would barely touch and I’d have to review the video a dozen times to make sure they touched. Not the case at all.
- Hard Atomgripz Quad Band-x1-right hand *Notes: 1st time closing this gripper and I barely got it. Felt harder than the Hard #3.5.
