My ultra wide set is stronger than my CCS

Hey guys I was struggling to progress on my vulcan.

CCS is crazy difficult for me and as of a couple weeks ago I had stalled completely and could only do light work with the vulcan.

During my gripper session today I decided to try a set as wide as possible while still being able to keep my pinky on the handle.

To my suprise I nearly closed level 15 from the ultra wide set. (CROM spring)

I couldn't even close level 13 with a Credit Card Set how is this possible?

My hand are nearly 8.7 inches and very wide.

I think i have a decent idea what you're experiencing, I'm having a similar phenomenon with my Deep set where i feel stronger doing far wider stuff, I'd just say if you feel stronger doing that much of a wider set, Try just sliding the card through the wide gap and closing, I know some gripsters like Ivan Cuk do it

Your hands are even larger than mine you could probably no set a Vulcan.

I am just going to train Table no Sets and No Sets exclusively from now on.

I will  wait until I am strong enough to do a no. 3 no set and certify that way.

Except for Vulcan V2 training because I can only no set lighter settings on it without my pinky locking up.

Not sure of the precise decimal but they're north of 9 inches long

Its definitely a challenge to deep set, Since i have to position the back handle of the gripper up *further* than the palm crease to be able to get the right amount of leverage

Wouldn't suprise me at all if they were over 9 inches since you are 200 cm tall

Its actually interesting, Since i've been training wide and carded sets, I've actually kinda forgotten the technique for deep setting, so i think i might just stick with wide sets from now on since they feel so much more comfortable, They also tear my hands up way less

I know that the captains of crush grippers ramp up in difficulty and that the hardest part of the range of motion is at the end. So I have no idea whether or not deep sets could still help you in that regard since I am far from an expert on grippers. But doing deep sets with hands that large just seems counterproductive and a waste of time.

You're probably right honest, My friend Ivan's been saying that for the longest time too since he's a wide set specialist himself, I'm probably just gonna stick to wide sets from now on anyway and see where i end up, Since it also causes me far less pain than deep setting

I would like to see that. Post some pictures. That’s insanely big. And he’s 200cm tall? Huge. My hand is 8 Inches and the biggest hand  I’ve ever seen belongs to Justin Major and his is just about 9 inches. This Jeremiah Sounds like a monster. I will post some pics of my hand near Justin’s. It looks like a child’s.
