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!

 

 

From Ironmind.com

 

#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
