I read that you had a home made adjustable gripper, I was just wondering how you made it or what it looked like.

Well i kinda hacked the extended handle off here is some new pictures of it. There is a pin attached to that paracord it, you take it out and it allows you to slide the spring when you find where you want it you squeeze the handles and place the pin back in when the holes line up, It also holds the handles the same width as a coc.

Good work bro. Interesting to see how you can improve by going to failure on grippers and two days later can do a max attempt again. I mean interesting in the way how bodies vary in terms of recovery. I retrogress when doing sessions so short after each other. Now go and do some showing off on the beach, with your improved tendons! :grin:
