Thanks I should be really close to a ccs close on my coc 3 that was my goal when I first got my grippers.

When are you going to certify?

I think I’m still a ways away from that. My GHP7 is a little easier than my coc 3. I don’t think I can ccs my 3 right now. Plus none of my grippers are rated so I don’t really know where they land would hate to get a hard 3 when trying to cert and miss it. I think I would want to be able to get a couple reps on my 3 before even trying. Would also be nice to know if my 3 is an easier one or harder one but I think if I can crush my 3 for a couple reps I’ll be fine not sure if I’ll ever get it rated.

Strong CCS close on the GHP7!  How much harder does your #3 feel?  I don't know if you have them RGC rated.

Thanks, I do not have them rated and it isn’t much of a difference when I was first closing my 7 I was about 1mm from closing my coc 3 didn’t take long to get my 3 after my 7. Seems like the last millimetre is a lot tougher on my 3 than my 7 though. Once I get a few ccs closes in a row on my 7 and I know it wasn’t a fluke haha I’ll probably give my 3 a try. 
 

I try not to do to many attempts on my max grippers because when I first closed my 7 my workouts turned into just trying to mash my ghp7 and my coc 3 set after set. The whole workout would consist of 6 or 7 reps where I failed atleast half of them and that’s when my progress stalled maybe even when backwards. 
 

For now just one or two sets with either my 7 or my 3 per workout so I can still get lots of “work” in with my 2.5. Once I can consistently get reps with my heavier gripper I will probably start doing more work sets with them. So far this has kept me progressing so I plan on sticking with it atleast for now.

Just realized most of what I typed didn’t have anything to do with your question. Sorry for the long read haha.

How often do you train grippers a week? Still 2 to 3 times?

No problem with the long reply.  Sounds like your training is going very well!

spent the last two full days on a grinder and my hands were killing me before this workout so I knew it wasn’t going to go very good. Also took it a bit easy so my hands can recover for next workout.

Good sets with that 2,5! I wanted to ask you how do you set the gripper for inverted closes. I never tried them before

The gripper is upside down so the bottom of the handle if you by your thumb and pointer finger. I also do them from a way tighter set than my normal closes probably parallel I can throw a video up on here tonight for you if you want. They feel a bit weird for heavier closes but for pumping out high reps with lighter grippers I think they feel good. They are in the little booklet that comes with iron mind grippers. People say they don’t really help your regular closes at all but I have been doing them since I started grippers so I don’t want to stop now I think they feel good and I get a good pump so why not can’t hurt right.
