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.
After using it a bunch the first night I got it I had to wait a few days for my hands to heal from the grip and my forearms to recover. Now after a week or so of using it my hands don't hurt from the grip and I can do 3 sets of 12 and max out in the 20's for my right hand and about 18 or 19 on my left. I will probably buy the next step up soon but I am still benefiting from using this one so I will give it a couple more weeks.
Really can't wait to work my way up!
To give an idea, before I started using the #1s, my max working set for DeadLift was 225lb, sometimes 235lb. After that, my grip would fail me, and I would only be able to do one rep or more. Now, my DeadLift is starting to shoot up with my max working set at 255lb. ~4 week difference, and previously I had been at 225lb for 4+ weeks due to grip.
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.
There's nothing more emasculating than failing miserably at squeezing a gripper. No wait, there is one other - ripping your hands apart while trying.The laser machined grips are like razor tinged barb wire to pasty white office worker hands.
It's tough, but the key is gradually increasing the number of reps so you don't wear holes in your hands on these grips of terror. I've been doing this since last week and I'm already seeing a difference in the number of reps and general strength in my forearms. And it's a wonderful feeling when you successfully squeeze those twin talons of terror. I'm looking forward to upgrading to a stronger model in a few months.
