Best Grip Strengthening Forearm Building Equipment


Recommended Posts

griplike

I want to ask you guys, if i have to choose between getting only one of these machines. Which one should i get and why? I want to build massive forearms and increase my grip strength.

Also why is there a huge price difference between the titan gripper and sorinex gripper? Thank You

 Depends on what kind of grip strength you're looking to improve.  Let's just default and assume overall grip strength. 

     Which machine?  Doesn't really matter.  Massive forearms?  Tons of volume (and good genetics).  Strong grip strength?  Time under tension.  Good restsults with both?  Be consistent with both, and wait.  

  Also, add variety to your training. This is very important....and let's not forget that recovery is huge!!!  If you don't pay attention to recovery now, you will be forced to later, and it is a very long and frustrating path because it takes so much longer for joints, tendons, and ligaments to heal.  Nothing haults progress faster than an injury.  Regular blood flow is king.

 

  Also, please for the love of everything good,  train your extensors. Lol Ignoring balance/imbalances is a fast track to injuries.

  I'm sure others with chime in with more specifics, but that's the nuts and bolts.  

  ...and to be clear, big forearms doesn't always equal a strong grip. (Not assuming you think that).  Look at Slim, Cody Burns, Adam Glass, and Andrew Durniate as good examples of that.

 

  I hope that helps.

None of those machines are necessary for a world class grip. Get any rolling handle, a thin and a wide pinch, and a sledgehammer. That's all most people need.

You can build an awful lot of grip strength (and possibly size) with just a barbell.  Wrist curls - reverse wrist curls - wrist curls behind the back and reverse curls done as a giant set to failure on each with no rest between exercises.  Aim for 8 reps - when you hit 12 - add weight - keep adding weight every time you ca do 12 reps.  Then a few days later do finger curls in a rack (crl grip) - start with higher reps - keep adding weight and lowering reps - "roll" the bar up you legs and do negatives.  (Break into all this slowly)  Then take a sledge hammer and lever it in all directions - front, back, rotate in, rotate out.  Higher reps here.  So two different workouts with two days off in between each one.  This will give you the "base" strength and sort of "injury proof" you for the more specialized work to do later on.   Do this for at least a couple months before moving on to the fancy stuff.  You'll be pleasantly surprised.

Hello!

I didn't get how to do the finger curls in a rack. Do you do them hanging? or how?
