Ooh, stats are always fun...

strongest gripper closed: hg150 (rb 180 down to parallel, havent been training grippers for a while thou)

Wrist 6 1/4"

Forearm 11 1/2"

FW ratio 1.84

Waist 32"

Hand 7 1/8"

Bonzi,

New here (Just done an intro). Love the thread here`s mine:

Hand Length = 7.75"

Palm Length = 4.50"

Finger Length = 3.25"

Wrist Circumference = 7.25"

Forearm Straight relaxed = 11.00" (Note difference)

Forearm Straight fist clenched = 11.25"

Forearm Goosenecked = 13.25"

F/W ratio relaxed = 1.517

F/W ratio fist clenched = 1.552

Waist = 32"

Best Gripper Close = CoC #1 (Nearly a #2)

:ohmy Bottom of the table I guess the only way is up!!

Cheers

Forearm: 12.2'' (replace my other one because I measured it with my wrist cocked/cranked)

Palm: 4.35''

Finger: 3.4''

I like this topic. :D

And dimmers, I agree that it would be nice to be some big names, but hey, the way the grip game goes, who knows who will be a big name in a couple years?

Please, for standardization purposes, use:

  • actual waist size at largest circumference and not pant size
  • forearm measured with arm straight and wrist not cranked(fist clenched is OK)UPDATE, let's use a relaxed forearm
  • hand size measured from first crease of wrist to then end of middle finger
  • We also have to make sure it's standarized. I.E. palm is considered first crease of wrist to first crease in middle
    finger and finger length is considered first crease in middle finger to the end of the middle finger. thanks to
    superfeemiman for this standard

According to busamad, there can be a bit of difference for wrist measurements when clenching the fist

let's try to measure with an open relaxed fist and straight forearm. If you guys want to update

any previous measurements, bring 'em on.

Be patient on the top grip masters participating. More are filtering in daily. Thanks to all

for the participation and suggestions. BTW, you will notice a few BBSE members

listed. When you get there you are at a level very few, maybe a handful, have achieved. :mosher

I think I got this right...

Wrist: 6.25

Forearm: 12

Hand: 7.5

Palm: 4.0

Fingers: 3.5

Best gripper #3

I finally found my soft tape measure to get a little more accurate. My forearm is closer to 13.5" and my wrist is only 7 3/8" around for a ratio of 1.83, everything else is correct.

Well, I've added one more column to our pool of minutiae. The proportion of the middle finger length to

overall hand length has been added. :mosher

Seems like were a lot more streamlined than one might of thought, though maybe that has to do with the people who aren't participating? What I mean is, it would be great to see some of the stats of guys with 9+ or near 9 inch hands and guys with less than 7.

Anyway though, I love reading these stats, keep it up!

I thought about adding a column with the chart ranking of each gripper closed per person.

Any input about the rankings on this list as to placement? It at least will give new

folk a basis of what the grippers represent.

Also, in an earlier posting I stated that BBSE grippers were near the top of the gripper

food chain. They are, but the RB 330 is at least there with them and some think that it

might be a little tougher.

Keep those stats coming, the data pool is far from representative of this board and

therefore the grip world. :mosher

P.S. I won't add this chart to each post, but might start another post to reference from

this thread.

'nuther P.S. What do y'all think about adding a column with the type set used to close

your max gripper?

This is starting to look interesting. I'll throw my measurements into the mix. It would be nice to get a lot more people posting their stats so we might be able to notice some trends.

Wrist: 6.75

Forearm: 11

Waist: 34

Hand: 8.25

Palm: 4.5

Finger: 3.75

Best Gripper: #2

Please, for standardization purposes, use:

  • actual waist size at largest circumference and not pant size
  • forearm measured with arm straight and wrist not cranked(fist clenched is OK)UPDATE, let's use a relaxed forearm
  • hand size measured from first crease of wrist to then end of middle finger
  • We also have to make sure it's standarized. I.E. palm is considered first crease of wrist to first crease in middle
    finger and finger length is considered first crease in middle finger to the end of the middle finger. thanks to
    superfeemiman for this standard
  • P = Palm Measurement
  • F = Middle Finger Measurement
  • H = Hand Measurement
  • See Post 72 in this thread for gripper rankings and poundages to close

I noticed that most of the heavy closers are trending to the top of the list which is

ranked by Forearm Size/Wrist Size. Either these guys are predisposed to have

bigger forearms in relation to their wrist or they have developed this relationship

over many hours of training.

An interesting trend to watch would be someone close to the top in this list who

is just starting out(I.E. natural, God given). Check the progress and see

if he advances at a quicker rate than someone not so blessed. Just a little food

for thought. :mosher

If we're going to go the whole hog, the ratio of forearm length to forearm circumference would be interesting. My forearm is 10.5" long from crease of my elbow to the crease of my wrist(the one where you start the hand measurement from). So 10.5" long, and 14.5" around.

My forearm is 9.75" long and 13.5 around.

The size of your wrist will increase with training - especially levering. You should sort all of this by max gripper close and see what patterns develop in regards to hand, wrist and forearm size.

If you have the hand and wrist measurements that the stronger grippers have, you can gauge where you will naturally progress to, with increased training. That doesn't mean that someone with small wrists and hands cannot achieve the same grippers. It might just mean more work.
