Since I have read the first page, I'll add some information.
I've into a lot stuff from martial arts, bikes, motorcycles, weapons etc.
Grip training started with some martial arts and wrestling and finally the military.
I used rubber balls most of my training from small hard and soft 1" balls.
They really work the fingers to 2-4" balls like out of machines you see at places like Coney Island .
I used my Szabo balls from Laci Szabo ,used them for 4 years 1995-1999. Just did a reorder after 15yrs of not having them.
Bands had played a big part also from rubber bands to rehab bands you see at physical therapy.
Plates pinch grip training increased when I got in the military and started getting back into wrestling and combat training.
Most people do not isolate the fingers ( The small rubber balls work wonders) or work fingers at all.
I plan to get more knowledge from here and meet people from the forums and train. Since there is a big surge with grip training now( before the internet you thought you was the only one).
Maybe one day compete or watch first. Over the last 4-5 years I have been checking the net for sites and people in the grip game.
Now, I have found you guys (even though you guys been on here for years), I hope to get only better. Home made stuff works but only to your limits.
Since, I am at Grip Board University and as a freshman here , I seek your guidance.
