4-4-11: MMS Grippers – first real progress in years

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.

4-4-11, Monday


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.
