A lesson I learned is that pain does not always mean injury.

That the greatest joy in life is to crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women!

Never overwork yourself because more isn't always better!

  • squats should be the cornerstone of your training.
  • there will be pain; work through it. BUT--
  • if nausea accompanies the pain, go see a doctor.
  • don't start bending until you've been doing grip training for a while. like a year+ (learned that one the hard way)
  • don't just focus on grippers, do a wide variety of exercises. everything boosts everything else.
  • take care of the skin on your hands--knurling will tear it off eventually.

"The hands follow different rules training wise than the body at times, remember that" Be open, listen, and experiment to find what works just right for you

Like any strength training endeavor, without dedication and discipline, you won't reach your potential.

Dedication, discipline and determination!! The 3 "D's"!! :bow

Don't forget the 4th D - DESIRE

Without it you'll find the find the other 3 hard to maintain.

It's one thing to set goals, but it's entirely something else to have and operate with the desire to make them a reality. Joe Kinney comes to mind as a good example. . . .

Desire is the fuel that keeps you going when you would otherwise quit, make excuses, or stray.


I think determination implies desire is there too. If you're determined to do something, there has to be a reason for you to pursue it in the first place. If you choose to pursue something, that means you want it for whatever reason.

"Dont just train train train without rest just because you feel like it" Respect the body and rest every now and then. "Your Strength maybe even greater than you thought"

Train smart.. This doesn't necessarily mean train until you drop. Listen to your body. It knows when enough is enough for the day

My 2nd tip;

Getting your technique right can be the difference between getting that extra rep in or not, whether you're dead lifting, squatting, bench repressing or shutting that goal gripper. Getting the form right is way more important than lifting that heavy ass weight up.

Before starting to bend steel buy Jedd Johnsons BENDING DVD.

Dont do too much in IMPs only right away. That can really F you up!

Been 4-5 months since I hurt my palms from crushing too much in IMPs too fast and Im still hurt.

Crushing still hurts some what.

 

Like others said, work your arms, wrists, thumbs, crush, open hand.

Dont keep going if you feel pain coming on, rest and recover and look over your technique and such.

Also be carefull with heavy negs on grippers when you're new too grip. 

I hurt my palm with them 4 months after starting to use grippers and I was out for months.
