Captains of Crush Hand Grippers will help you do this. These well-built little devices will help you turn that soft breeze of a handshake into hurricane of power with gale force winds. People will be naming your handshake like they do with tropical storms. Girls will fall in love with the quiet, masculine power that courses through your hands after you've worked your way through a CoC gripper or two. Do you remember that scene in Predator where Dutch and Dillon do that handshake? If you watched Predator as a kid, you probably remember this as the moment you started puberty. If you watched Predator as an adult, you'll remember this scene as the moment you went through your second puberty. It's that macho. These grippers can make you a handshaking MACHINE.
Added bonus is that you can get certified once you work your way up to a CoC 3. That's a world class grip. Think of how impressed people will be when they walk into your office and see a certificate on the wall saying you are a Captain of Crush. If I walked into my doctor's office and he had that bad boy on the wall, I'd be completely unafraid of getting my prostate checked. A man that has the power to crush will know the value of quiet strength. I'd know I was in good, strong hands.
The Trainer (100lbs) is a decent entry level gripper for those that are already accustomed to compound lifts and anyone going past 3 plates dead lift would probably find it mildly challenging or at the very least a decent warmup. I've read many posts on forums that to avoid tendonitis you should start with a gripper level that you can comfortably do for 10-12 reps and move on from there.
Great product and I will be ordering the heavier sets soon. Decent way to improve grip strength and endurance while lounging about at home.
I just purchased the #1 after getting to 3 sets of 15 reps with the trainer and I think that was a good progression. I still use the trainer for a 2 warm up sets of 10.
Enjoy, and be careful.
Also, this was a 100-lb tension force, which is a great place to start if you have a grip weakened due to an injury.
If you have been lifting for a while and have a decent grip, start with the 0.5 or 1, but the 1 is pretty tough for a person new to grip training, even if they have been lifting weights for as a beginner or early intermediate (less than 2 years).
The grippers are marked at the base of each grip handle to indicate tension strength The trainer is marked with a a "T", the 0.5 is marked ".5" and so on.
All in all, great product line and I look forward to building my crushing grip strength with them.
I thought about the others before purchasing, but won't bother now that I have one of these.
I got the .5 -> its challenging to start with. I can close it, but only 10 times or so.
Get these if you're serious about grip.
Just buy one. Seriously. The grip is checkered, so it toughens your hands also, but you'll need that for grip strength. I think they also have smooth surfaced ones, but I like the COC surface.
And I'm a very short guy (5'6" on a good day) with smaller hands, and they work just fine to wrap my hand around it. I had read that a different brand might be better for smaller hands, but I'm good with it.
