Hand Grippers

Hand Grippers are probably the most popular grip training tool known universally. There are countless varieties on the market, but too often uninformed people let themselves be duped by cheap springs, training only for those who wake up from a coma that lasted years.

The brands on the market are different, such as: GBI, CoC Ironmind, HG Heavy Grippers, BB Beef Builder, RB Robert Baraban, GHP Gillingham High Performance, Silvis, Animal Hunter, Silarukov, Python Grip FBBC Fat Bastard Barbell Co, Atomgripz , Vulcan Hand Gripper (David Horne), GOG Gods of Grip and Jujimufu’s GripGenie.

That said, the Grippers have springs of different thicknesses to offer different levels of difficulty, almost always expressed in pounds and starting from a base of 100lb, to go up from fifty to fifty up to about 400 lb. They are an excellent tool for integrating grip enhancement within your workouts. It is often believed that doing deadlifts, pull-ups and rowing can be training for grip strength, in part it is so, but the dynamic component of training is neglected, that complete range of motion that involves the entire muscles well. Would you train the other muscles by doing isometric work only and exclusively? I suppose not, so you have to think about the grip as you think about the other muscle groups!
