    Awesone stuff Evan, you just need to try bending and then you would have tried most grip/wrist strength lifts!

    thanks Josh! I have to try bending at some point, but I have to sneak the nails in the apartment without my wife noticing:P all this grip stuff is driving her crazy I think.
    Frank, thanks brother!

Tried my hand back at grippers after 2 weeks off due to pain and was few mm from my #145 MM set. Feel better knowing what strength my grippers are and what I need to bridge the gap!

    Think I've plateau on grippers now as that was my main grip strength. So it was interesting to know how far I could get just by doing that! Gonna try and mix it up and do some RT and hub work during the week and dedicate 1 or 2 sessions to full grippers. Time is something I wish I had more of!

So want to get a gripper in the 133-140 range, what's the best option; (1) hope for a low #3 (2) a high #2.5 (3) file a #2.5 to the range?

    Great options Geralt and Frank, i would prefer to have a complete gripper in that range compared to a filed one but I will see what I can do. Thanks Guys!!

Injured myself in last grip contest. Oh man, this takes time to heal. Distal joint of right thumb cant handle any pressure and had to put a splint in it. Also feeling some symptoms in left thumb as well, maybe from overtraining the half-a-penny lift. Just a warning for anyone, dont overdo training. Being able to use the thumb separates man from monkey :)

    No. Im hoping it is only tendonitis. Cant do much about it but rest and take anti-inflammatory medicine.

    Actually not. Had money precisely so I could buy the gripper.. (Life as a student hehe) But will pick up more grippers from CPW that will be rated in the future when I got the money. But my rating device works good now when I have the correct width on the strap.

    I could only do it as its my birthday soon, being a student sucks haha. I thought I may as well as it only costs like £2 extra per gripper which is like me buying a can of coke from the shops!

    Yikes! I mean I took like almost to months off from grippers, and took about a month of training to get back to where I was. Damn dude that's a long recovery, I guess I was kinda lucky after that fall.

    It's tough sport sometimes. But we break so we can get stronger. Glad you're back.
