      Have both of these kinds, and they both snapped after a few months. Utter shite.

    i got a captain of crush one and ive gotten better with it (moved up one level but still dyel level) and i guess technically my grip is stronger but aesthetically its done nothing for me and it hasnt helped any of my lifts esp not deadlifts

        Idk man i thought it would build my bitch forearms but apparently it doesnt translate over. Hopefully itll help me with deadlifts bc i always fail because of my grip

            I actually did this today at the gym, except with one of those 20lb fixed weight barbell. Or would the wrist roller work better? I did wrist rollers with the fixed weight, and also wrist curls and behind the back wrist curls. I did 20s but 3 sets, 60 reps, 20 reps then around 10 reps for each exercise. Does that sound ok? High volume low weight

        Majority of old people injure themselves from falling. Having good grip strength can make you not fuck up your wrist when you fall, when youre older

    They worked for me. I started with one of those adjustable shits that went up to 60kg max and worked my way up to 110kg on my right hand, while being able to rep 90kg on both hands. Grip is much stronger, I can one arm deadhang for almost one minute with my right arm and forearm gains are very noticeable. I also don't have grip issues anymore with rdl, hanging leg raises or high volume pull-ups. It's probably the result of the combination of everything, but those grippers definitely helped

        obviously not from spinning alone, i train them of course, but i think the spinning for hours a day definitively attributes.

        Don't listen to this retard, he can barely string together a coherent sentence; there's no way he knows why his arms are big.
        Fidget spinners are absolutely the best way to get your forearms yoked.

      3. Attach other end of rope to clasp
      Then simply slip whatever weight you want to use and secure it with the clasp.

        If you're gonna diy it put two cords in spaced apart a bit. It will help centre the weight

        Using rope is a pain in the ass, just buy one with a nylon strap they work way better.

          That does look pretty good. Even with the two cords it can still wind up to one side pretty easily.

            What is the grip on it like?
            I have this one:

            If you're gonna diy it put two cords in spaced apart a bit. It will help centre the weight

            it feels pretty great. I have another one that is like a thick smooth pipe.
            That one doesn't feel great. Presumably thicker handles would impart more grip gains but it being smooth and thick just doesn't feel good in the action like the one in the pic which is thinner and knurled.

    Would recommend going directly to the baraban and directly to the chalk.
    Cheaper and more efficient in the long run.

    For entry level I would actually recommend this kind:
    https://www.amazon.com/FYY-Strengthener-Adjustable-Resistance-Exerciser/dp/B0B2DPXC7Q/ref=sr_1_36?crid=3T4SC3CZIAWKF&keywords=grip+strength+trainer&qid=1656838528&sprefix=grip+strength+train%2Caps%2C343&sr=8-36

    There's lots of this kind on amazon and ebay so get the cheapest one that says it goes up to 60kg and does not have the rep counter thing on it to annoy you.

    You can get these things for a few dollars, they do not have a hand bias like a captains of crush style one and when you have maxed this out you will be roughly equivalent to captains of crush #1.
    Getting from nothing to coc #1 for a few dollars isn't bad.

    Total waste of time. You don't need to train grip in isolation when you can train it while doing more important stuff.

    I leave some in my cup holder and use them at stoplights. No visible difference, but I feel like I'm better able to hold on to my deadlifts since starting this. Helps pass the commute, so any gains made are essentially free.
