3 Tools for Improving Grip Strength
Whether you are trying to make your boss feel like they are shaking hands with a gorilla or you are just trying to get better grip strength for a fitness purpose then these tools are for you!
Today I will be showing you 3 of my favorite grip-strengthening tools that I have used personally and that I owe a lot of credit to in regards to my fitness success!
#1. Iron Mind’s “Captains of Crush” Grippers
These little puppies are not your average squeeze with ease grip tools. They pack a huge punch and have a very wide range level of difficulty.
All the way from the “Guide” level – to the “No. 4 CoC” there is a gripper level for everyone.
These grippers are very high quality and also come with instruction books on how to master them!
The levels are as follows:
Guide – 60lb. (Novice, rehab)
Sport – 80lb. (Warm-up, conditioning)
Trainer – 100lb. (Strong guys start here)
.5 CoC – 120lb.
1 CoC – 140lb.
1.5 CoC – 167.5lb.
2 CoC – 195lb.
2.5 CoC – 237.5lb.
3 CoC – 280lb. (If you close this you can be world-class certified)
3.5 CoC – 322.5lb.
4 CoC – 365lb. (You can either order this, or just crush bricks instead)
You can find these grippers at Ironmind.com for $22.95/e + shipping.
#2. Dynaflexpro “Powerball”
This thing not only improves grip stamina but it’s also really cool to play with.
It’s powered by a pull-string and a – Gyro which provides extreme forces at high RPM’s making the ball difficult to hold on to.
I use this product to warm up before rock climbing and other forearm-related workouts.
Plus it gets the veins pumping to impress the ladies…
Find yourself a Powerball at Dynaflexpro.com for 29.99 + shipping.
#3. (My personal favorite) Iron Mind’s “Rolling Thunder”
This heavy-duty piece of equipment is a pull-up enthusiast’s dream come true!
It has a thick rotating handle that is extremely difficult to hold on to as you perform your pull-ups.
The rotation of the thick-bar makes it so you have to pinch and squeeze causing a sweet over-grip workout pump.
Since I am fairly decent at pull-ups, I find it very hard to work out the right areas that I need in order to progress and to break annoying plateaus. The Rolling Thunder does this job perfectly.
I highly recommend this product for those of you who are already really strong and need a little extra kick-in-the-pants to get the job done.
They are a tad pricey at $79.95/each without shipping… but if you are like me and take grip strength very seriously. I know you’ll find it worth it!
Go pick yourself up a pair at the one and only Ironmind.com
