Hi everyone! Does it make sense to have a single reps with heavy grippers 6 days a week for 5-6 single reps on each hand per day, and combine it with studies armwrestling three times a week?

If you see progress, yes. If not, then change it up.

Well I know for me that wouldn't work. The pressure put on my hands from grippers is too much, making recovery slow. So I only do them once a week. But if it works for you, then do it. Just be aware of fatigue, improper recovery, and anything that feels like injury. If that happens, change it up.

Thanks everyone! The problem is that I just can not not touch grippers for a single day, I ask my wife that she had hidden them. Then under the pretext that "I just see them", take and compress them))) So, my solution for that problem, system of training 6 days a week. If will not be progress, I will try train with grippers once a week,

That's totals to a volume of 20-30 supramax/ max/ or circamax closes a week. I say go for it, see how your body responds, but tread with caution.

What you might want to do, if you really just can't keep your hands off the grippers, is have alternating light and heavy days. Say, Monday Wednesday and Friday would be your heavy single close days, while Tuesday Thursday Saturday you could use a much lighter gripper and do a few sets of reps, which would train either endurance or do recovery, depending on how light you go.

this is good idea! Thanks

Just depends on what you're training for. If you're training to do a CCS cert, then do that, if you're training for an MMS cert, or a competition where that set will be used, do that.

Personally, I don't set grippers, I just close them from open. I have my own reasons for that...

Don't spend to long at a time on a grip session if you are training 6 days a week just do what your body can handle!

Best to start slow, low volume, low intensity and over time pick up the volume then intensity. Train smart, avoid injury, slow and steady will get you to your goals with minimal time off from injury.

You have to wait until the program is complete. There is no way you will see gains immediately normally as it's basically controlled overtraining/overreaching. It's called a rebound. Which is why after you switched to once a week after RRBT "progress" started.   ;)

Hard grip training 6 days a week has worked good for many people. KTA for grippers for example..

Grippers 6 days a week is a bit much I would think. I only train 2 days a week and that seems to work for me.

Agree.  When I was strongest on grippers it was a 2 day split.  And didn't really have a "weekly" schedule because what is a week anyway?  No reason to force yourself to plan within arbitrary groupings of days.  I would just train again when I was fresh and it tested well.  Overall it probably averaged twice per week though.

I've kinda wanted to ask you about that for a while.  Would you elaborate on your reasoning?  Is it just a personal goal, physical characteristic, or you think this is the best way to make progress?  Curious.

Basically, I don't like setting grippers. Haha. And I don't like closing them that way. I don't feel like I've really "done" it if I set a gripper and close it, I only feel accomplished If I do it from all the way open. Having big hands aids in this, my leverage is better from the open position. And I'm not really too big of a gripper guy, so it's not such a big deal to me to be closing them from parallel and to see how many I can do that way. If I can get the ironmind certs, cool, but I'm not too interested, say, in training to close grippers parallel for a competition. If I could do the mash monster grippers from open, that would be cool too, but I'm not really too concerned about it, so parallel sets (or really any sets) just aren't my thing...
Plus, my own training is really more in the spirit of developing and applying brute force, and I don't think grippers really factor into that much. I'm more about the grip lifts.
