    Yes, but you have to hold it tightly for long periods of time instead of just closing and opening you hand up in less than a second.

      Why? Do forearms respond better to TUT?

        >Why? Do forearms respond better to TUT?
        Everything responds better with TUT.
        Some movements just make TUT unreasonable because of the nature of the movement.
        In this case yes, grip strength responds to TUT.
        You don't get to build big deadlift or 225 pullups by just lifting things a few time.
        At some point you gotta put the work in time wise.

          Oh, I see. I've never purposely fricked with TUT outside of gymnastic holds if that counts. Where else should you use TUT?

            Literally everything that is reasonable.
            Like obviously I can't TUT box jumps.
            Certain muscles also don't really respond to TUT because of how little length on the muscle exist.
            Calf raises (calf and soleus) don't really respond well to TUT, but they do respond to it all the same. You just get more out of the hypertrophy aspect.
            Abs also respond better to hypertrophy than TUT.

            For both of these a true one second count is all that is necessary. Do movement, hold, release movement. If you try holding any longer than a second you'll spend all day doing the calf raises or ab exercise since they are often in the 200+ rep count.

            Bicep curl responds probably best to TUT.
            As you lift up it's a three second count, pause, three seconds back down.
            Just nice and steady, don't go too heavy this way that will come as you get stronger.
            Once you start adding TUT you're going to find it is ripping apart your muscles much more than you anticipated and the weight you're using is probably too much.
            Alongside that your tendons and ligaments also need time to adjust as they aren't use to that weight under such length of time. So back off slightly on your weight m8.
            If you're doing the 3 second, pause, 3 second for 4x12 or some shit at max weight for rep range you're going to frick your shit up.

              Alright, thanks mate. I'm currently trying high reps(12-16) due to numerous tendon injuries but once that's done in 4 weeks, I'll give TUT a go. My main goals are arm and trap size. I feel like traps would get more out of a stretch rather than TUT.

                Dude if you already have tendon injuries drop rep count now.
                Hypertrophy severely aggravates tendon joint problems and you adding TUT is going to make it worst on that range.
                Also supplement collagen (eat more collagen) and make sure you're getting vitamin C twice daily. Once first thing in morning if possible and once in afternoon/evening.

                Try the TUT in like 4-6 rep range at moderate weght for 4 set.
                Kind of see how you feel first. Don't add something crazy if you already have injuries.

                Wait, what? Higher reps = lighter weight, lighter weight means less tendon stress.
                The tendon pain came from excessive back lever and front lever, not hypertrophy training. I get a good amount of vitamin C but I'll have to look into collagen.
                I'll wait 4 weeks before trying anything.

                Total volume matters dude.
                Just because you drop weight doesn't mean you aren't causing extreme irritation with repetitive movements.

                I'm not saying don't try TUT with your other workouts.
                However I stand clearly if you tendon/joint pain on a specific lift you need to back off and prioritize your diet while doing slow and steady buildup on that particular tendon.
                All research shows that it takes about four weeks longer to recover from a similar injury that you would have on a muscle. Because of the lack of direct bloodflow to sheathed tendons. Which only have a blood supply at each end of the tendon.
                Regardless of what you decide, check diet also.
                Collagen and vitamin C aren't a meme, they are 100% necessary and most modern diets do not have enough of either regularly throughout the day.

      I think they do something, but for forearm size you wanna train wrist flexion and wrist extension.

      Most of my forearm mass is from wrist curls, but forearm extensions are important too for symmetry and shit.

      This is an exercise tool for wrist curls and forearm extensions. You can also use dumbbells or other variations. just google it

    Definitely get one of those, then get a stronger one once you adapt.

    My fingers have never felt this good, amazing for rehab and overall finger conditioning.

    With the weak ones you can train individual fingers/thumb too.

    My forearms have gained a lot of mass purely because of grippers.

    If you can close it on max for reps: you can probably close a Captains of Crush #1.
    When you max it out there is still some stuff you can do.
    For instance: work up to max using less fingers.
    Or try this stuff:

    They are very good value for money for some niche things.

    I started with 3 rubber rings from my local gym store (15kg, 25kg, 40kg) and after a month I got myself a 70kg and 100kg metal hand grippers from ebay.
    I have seen increase in all my lifts simply by increasing my grip strength. Like 10% increase but still, I have a sense of better activation of specific isokated muscles when I don't need to worry about grip. I still have to worry about radial/ulnar deviation of wrist, which shows heavily in my suitcase dumbbell carries or one arm dumbbell rows, but I am on fast track of training forearms in all axis to help with this.

    The most extreme thing I have seen with training my grip strength is with pulldowns and pullups. From 50kgs on pulldowns to easy 80kg jump. Then I decided to try pullups and now I can do 6 pullups with bodyweight of 90kg, this is in course of 2 weeks. Also the aching pain on my right wrist I got 3 months ago has subsided and almost went away.

    Seemingly most ignored muscle group even though its most essential one in all of the lifts. Putting wrist straps doesn't help when you need to bring in moms groceries and everyone laughs when you cant hold onto few bags (even though its just your forearms which are having an issue)

        not the guy you're replying to but you turn a knob on them to make them easier or harder. the resistance isn't infinite, though.
        so you can get to a point where you can close it for reps at the maximum setting.

    I got one of those big ivanko grippers, but not sure how to use them. I'm pretty new to the gym so my grip hasn't failed me yet, but it's starting to. Should I use it for reps, or just static hold it? How often?

    Wait, have I been doing it wrong this whole time? I'm holding it like I'm trying to make a fist, or like I try to crush something in the palm of my hand. Should I also try to squeeze it with my fingers only? Or are both good?

    If you are going purely for size, my experience is that wrist curls are better, but hand grippers will also work.
    Also I wouldn't use adjustable grippers, better to get proper heavy grippers. You can buy some from a reputable company like captain of crush, but you can usually find some cheaper brands as well, that will be alright.
    The adjustable gripper strings has a tendency to break, if you use it at max resistance and are training with it somewhat often.

    yes but dont buy these cheap plastic ones. They have weird shapes and the finger carvings only work if you happen to be the right size. Buy the metal ones with straight handles. It will feel way better.

        You can either lift the weight by holding the horizontal pipe and curling or extending your forearms. Also you can stand by the side and grab the T-holder and perform arm wrestling style motion.

      I have one captains of crush 100lb and I think it has improved my grip strength and helped with definition of the forearm. I like to do 2-3 sets of 20 reps completely opening my hand and closing the gripper, then I'll immediately do 10-20 half-reps (not opening the hand fully but still closing the gripper) with the same hand. I'll also keep it closed as long as I can at random points during the process.

        Thank you fren. I recently have lost the spark for lifting, my job is draining all of my energy, and even though I got like 15minutes to work I come back tired and unmotivated. The other thing are the kids which need to be given dinner, have to train math and writing everyday and above that there's the whole house you must maintain. Both me and my wife work, so the household chores are also divided. So after coming home at 16:30, doing all the above, suddenly it's 21:00 and there's no way to go to the garage and lift. When my kids were little it was doable to train 3-4 times a week, but now... Don't get me wrong, I'm blessed with having a great family and I'm no hesitant to give up lifting if they want to play a boardgame with me. Nowadays, I use my garage gym more often as a dance studio for my daughter than for my training . I've made this forearm machine to let a kick to push myself harder in being consistent with my lifting.

    they really made my grip stronger, until eventually I broke it, because I was putting over max the force.
    I went from being barely able to squeeze it on quite low resistance, to maxing out 50 kg. I would just do some of it every time on my way to the gym.
    For me they worked, I wouldn't say that my forearms got bigger though, but definitely my grip got much stronger.
    I'm not sure if it's possible to increase your forearm size that much...
