Gripper training questions

Thanks. Right now I basically do 5 sets max reps with the hardest gripper I can close then just mess around getting a good pump doing some inverted stuff for high reps. If I had a gripper I could work with that was closed to my 3 for less reps I think that would be better but right now I just have my 2.5 and my 3 and reps on the 2.5 are getting pretty high now while the 3 is still feeling like a brick.

File the 2.5 and/or buy the bumper 😁

I was considering buying another 2.5 to file for some reason it just feels wrong filing my only 2.5. What is the bumper?

I think you should consider getting one of those too, because filing the gripper only makes the end stronger, while strength through the whole motion is important.

Have you noticed any benefit with the inverted closes when it comes to conventional closes? I really like them myself but I don't train them.

I don’t know if it helps my closes or not. I like how it feels gives me a good pump and I just throw them in after my hands are pretty much don’t from regular closes.

Sunday October 4

Warm up

coc 1 10 reps

coc 1.5 10 reps

coc 2 5 reps

work sets 

coc 2.5 9 reps right 5 reps left

ghp7 CCS failed 5mm short of closing right a bit more left

ghp7 parallel set missed right by 1mm left about the same 

ghp7 parallel set right 1 left missed by about 1mm 

coc 2.5 9 reps right 2 reps left 

inverted

coc 2 10 reps right 7 reps left 
coc 2 9 reps right 9 reps left

coc 2 10 reps right 8 reps left

coc 1.5 35 reps right 35 reps left

 

Bought a GHP 7 and it is a little bit easier than my COC 3. I think it’s a gripper to work on before I go back to my COC 3 because the jump from the 2.5 to 3 big for me. I hope once I feel comfortable with the GHP7 the 3 won’t feel as hard.

Videos are my parallel set ghp 7 right and left.

Looking strong man. What do you think of GHP? Personally, I really like the feel over CoC.

Thanks. I think I like the feel of the ghp more but that could be just because I can close the ghp.

So close man, you got it in no time though. Are you still after a CCS close with it?

I am not quite closed there hard to see, lighting sucks in my camp room.

Yeah I’m still after a CCS probably work on wider sets once I get that thing closed.

If you ever get the chance, try going for some #3 attempts between sets of pushing exercises. For me it helps a bit with the CNS, or it feels like that anyway. I know, I can't believe that it felt like a brick only 2 months ago or so and now we're almost there 💪
