Complete N00bie Needs A Training Routine


Recommended Posts

Hi, i am completely new to grip training, my Ivanko super gripper arrived today.

Can anyone please suggest a routine using just this piece of kit.


P.S. Am I supposed to repeatedly open and close it or close and hold? If hold, how long for?

Step 1, don't just specialise in grippers, even if that's all you're interested in, you won't close the #4 without utilising other aspects of grip.

Step 2, read the FAQ section, particularly this bit http://www.gripboard.com/index.php?showtopic=12608

Step 3, use the ISG on the heaviest setting you can.

Happy gripping.

You could have found that yourself. Read. Read. Read. Then ask, but remember, there is no such thing as a stupid question, as long as you've researched it first.

Step 1 is VERY important. I trained almost only with grippers for my first 6 months. I really, really repent that.
HA! I did it for 4 years! You'd think, at my age, and with my experience, I'd've known better!

There's a reason David Horne's so respected, he gave me about a years worth of advice in a 1 hour lunch!
