Another strap hold question

Recommended Posts

How does the weight held affect gripping strength? Would it work better to use lots oof weight, squeeze harder, but not for as long, or the opposite-use less weight & go for longer?

10-12 seconds is a good time target. I prefer heavier weights and shorter time. With my #2, I was doing 15 seconds with 15 pounds. I modified my #2 (cut the handles at 3'') and hold 7,5 pounds for the same time. I'll work up to 15 pounds for 5 seconds. The #3 should be very close by this time.

purely talking about weight, i feel like i need at least 10lbs on that string. with any less it just doesn't seem to pull. i've used as much as 20lbs with my 1 and i'd probly use more if i had it in my dorm room. i should be able to use my master for strapholds soon so maybe that weight will decrease.
