I'm curious what you guys think about volume and frecuenzy . I often hear people talking about how sore they get from griptraining both CNS and muscle wise. But I don't really get that worn down from doing grip. This thread will look like a humble brag thread, but I'm genuinely curious if I'm overdoing it and your thoughts about volume. Should I benefit from less volume? I hardly ever get sore or hurt. In powerlifting volume is key and you can either obtain it through working out often (which there are theories that it would be beneficial) or loads of volume on few but very long workouts)
"If it's working and your progressing keep at it " Totally agree, but it would be fun to hear your thoughts about trying to workout as optimal as possible for gripstrength.

My name is Siamak. Very new to gripsports as I have been training grip for about 3 months now. My background is in Olympic Weightlifting but my friend David Wigren got me into the sport by accident. We started conversing about arm wrestling and stongman until I saw that he was hosting a competition called the Swedish Grip Open.
I signed up on a whim just to test out my grip strength and began training for the comp. In the 2 months of grip training I was completely addicted to the sport!
Needless to say I came in last place at the comp but the experience was humbling and thrilling at the same time.
I will be attempting feats of grip strength and grip competitions in the future.
Been doing lots of volume training with the rolling thunder. In one workout I lifted a total weight of 7,935lbs but I really enjoyed it. Had a blast, when I go to Kentucky to train in isolation I’ll be using my 3 inch Trilobite mostly
