Gripper training questions

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.

Nice! If you could share a video it would be great
