Which two pair together best?

If you were to train primarily two of the big 3, which complement each other the best? Or how would you rank these from best pairing to worst pairing?

1. Thick bar and Pinch

2. Crush and Thick bar

3. Pinch and Crush

 

Thanks

I haven't found crush helping with anything except crush

If you HAD to train two aspects at once with a view to making solid gains  I'd be inclined to go with Adam's suggestion.

Make sure you allow yourself enough time recover between workouts - otherwise you'll have very little to show for it. . . . other than your pinch numbers going backwards.

Hopefully

I would put them in this order:

1

2

Each time I invested anything in thickbar, I didn't notice any increase in other areas. I feel pinch help me alot with grippers. Though I don't know if crush helps my pinch all that much, but on the other hand I can do them hard the same workout without a significant drop in strength in the other. Whereas thickbar would destroy the other areas for me.

Gripmachine full range crush training helps with fatbar and widepinch in my opinion.

I have had results with parallel handles like a grip machine or an ISG but the "nutcracker" shape didn't do anything for me.
