Gripper Progressions


Recommended Posts

Hey Gripmonsters!

I've been working on closing a gripper using progression-type training. I've been doing this with the #3 and can now get it 1/2" away from closing and I'm still on step 1. My idea is to work in these progressions:

1. Put a choker on the gripper you want to close and set choker to parallel

2. Close the gripper from parallel, if it closes go to step 4.

3. Assuming you can't complete step 2, work on the grippers you can already close and train no set closes. Go back to step 2.

4. Work on closing the choked gripper and then holding it closed.

5. If you can hold it closed from being choked, take off the choker and work on closing from a deep set or loosen the choker so the spread is wider than parallel.

6. After you can deep set it, credit card set it closed.

7. After that work on no set closes

8. You have owned your gripper!

I have a few questions, anybody tried something like this out? If I work with a gripper I can close to focus on the sweep, when the harder gripper comes out of the choker, will my sweep be just as strong as if I tried closing the harder gripper without the choker?
