    Gripper training methods

    Yeah I get that just do what works for you. I have built 90% of my strength with the Ivanko super gripper so maybe that's why my no sets are stronger than my sets. You can't set the super gripper and on top of that I usually just do super wide sets with my vulcan because it is a bitch to set.

    My no set is absolutely horrible due to now knowing how to do it so i don't really bother, Even with my meathooks i still find credit card setting a good bit more difficult, Hence why i switch it up between CCS and MMS

    Thank you Yes, it is RB 280 according to the wire diameter and the information I found on the gripboard. Shame that Robert discontinued their production.

    Yeah I agree I think with big enough hands that setting becomes useless. Take me as an example my hands are 22cm which is 8.66 inches my credit card set is actually weaker than my no set. Of course assuming you can line it up correctly and get the ideal leverages without setting it.

    Nice close and nice gripper. I never knew Baraban made these but it makes sense now when I look at it

    That actually sounds super interesting it reminds me of conjugate speed work.

    Gripper training methods

    Use a very light gripper and do speed closes. With very light I mean very light. Start with a gripper you can do more than 50 reps with. Use 20 mm block so you get 100% accurate setting on each rep. You will notice your speed will go up pretty quickly. Then you can slowly progress to harder grippers.

    Armlifting Training Report

    Vertical bar & Pinch training today. 60mm AASS Jug Replica-worked up to 1x1(150lbs)**PR 1H 3" AASS Pinch Block-4x3(42.5lbs-50lbs-56lbs-61lbs**PR) @ZRMMAmentioned he had good results with blob training after doing a v bar lift like a lbh, so I decided to give it a try. Hands definitely got warmed up for pinch and I should have started with a heavier weight. Going forward the odd time I throw in v bar I'll stick with this method and see how the results go. Unfortunately I don't have blobs so the wide block will have to suffice.

    Gripper training methods

    Personally, I've noticed that my explosion in the deep sets or MMS is very poor. Probably cause I compete in powerlifting and all my reps are paused. Bench, overhead presses and almost all of my squat variations are paused. So I'm really good at maintaining good strength under tension but when it comes to my goal grippers I'm very very slow to improve. And by goal gripper I mean less then 4-5mm before it closes. I'm impossible. I seem to have no explosive strength whatsoever in my hands lol. My TNS is decent provided that I can set the gripper. If it's super wide it taxes my fingers greatly. My hands are both a bit over 20.5cm in length by the way. Been trying to strengthen the ring finger and pinky as well. But I see that if I focus on that for say 2-3 weeks and skip regular gripper training, I lose a little strength. Thought I should share this on here. Seeing some of your insightful comments definitely helps me ponder a little more

    Slim The Hammer Man

    This is really sad to hear. He was truly the last of the old time strongmen. I will never forget my encounters with him. I had the privilege of meeting slim in person 3 times in my life. Once in 2002 at the AOBS dinner after he performed, and twice at his residence in 2008 when I lived in the same town as him (Pottstown PA). He has been an inspiration to me with my training and he will be missed by the strength community. Condolences to his family. RIP Slim, you were one of a kind

    Gripper training methods

    It’s comparable to arm wrestlers training partials…Levan is probably the best in the world at curling, but if he had to start from the hang position, he’d have to use much less weight! But that’s not where he needs the strength. Total arm strength would be full-range allowing the forearm to do its work…and your partial bicep strength will increase as well. I’ve noticed doing partial curls of all positions for weeks at a time during the years, you get a sort of a muscle lock…when you open up to 90 degrees, it’s almost like your body fights the opening; that’s good for arm wrestling, bad for guys trying to have a full range gripper close. It can be done of course, but why make it harder on yourself? if you want to certify COC, you might as well train full-range and have complete strength. And not messing around with setting, and elbow torque etc. when you have to increase your bench press so you can chase bigger grippers, you may be a deep setter.

    The science behind steel springback

    Spectacular article brother! This helps to explain why drill rod, stainless steel and heavy quality bolts are the best types of steel to train with for big bends down the road!

  21. Felt ok after some of my main training and messed around with some combo lifts. Pulled this off a couple times today with some solid holds at the top.
  22. 12-1-2021 1. Axle Double Overhand- 215x3, 245x3, 275x1 300x1(Conventional), 300x1(Sumo).. didn’t push axle today just got some reps in. 2. Fat Grip 1Arm Deadlift- 135x1, 145x1, 155x1, 165x1 (Right hand only) 3. 154lb Anvil + York100 Fatman (53.4lbs) attempted this lift twice and both lifts were solid with good holds at the top.

    Gripper training methods

    What is your hand palm length @SeNoLD? I think the 19.5cm @Ivan Cuk referred to was your wrist circumference. I agree 100%, it’s much harder to get strong leverage with just three or even two digits on the gripper! On deeper sets I think everyone’s roughly in the same boat.

  25. Hello guys! After trading some grippers around I decided to go for the challenge and acquire a full set of AtomGripz Gunmetal grippers from 1 to 6(that’s gonna be the hardest one to find). Status quo: AtomGripz 1 Band GunMetal AtomGripz 2 Band GunMetal AtomGripz 3 Band GunMetal AtomGripz 4 Band GunMetal AtomGripz 5 Band GunMetal AtomGripz 6 Band GunMetal A pic from a private collection (by Vitalik Sevko): If you happen to have some of these or know someone who does, please don’t hesitate to write me for some great offers!

    Congrats!!! Incredible effort on a tough gripper. Hard work does pay off
  27. I don't think it is the weight stopping me on that, I think it is the grip on that one -- and usually for me on things like axle it really is the weight and not the grip stopping me, but I can left over 200 with one hand on a standard barbell no problem, have done 240-250 that way. I just can't move 200 on a rolling thunder. Or 75 on a wrist wrench! Rotation and thick handles, whoa.
  28. I'd have to find a light GHP 8 for sure but maybe ... left hand I might be able to get MM0 on a light 3 even now, and the MM1 has such an easy set that maybe I could get to that also, with some work; I am at about 140 RGC lefty now but I think that is partly because I don't set well for lefty closes and probably would be a little higher with better sets. I was not aware that there are Inch dumbbells with varying thickness of handles. Naturally then I should be attempting the easier one first, but I think I have a ways to go yet!
