    Captain of crush. One warm up (can be other brand as it will be very light just to get blood flow going)

    One target you just can't close yet
    One working gripper.

    Once you close your target you buy a new target and the cycle goes on.

    Any adjustable gripper that goes from 5kg to 60kg, 60 reps spaced through the day on each hand with a rest day. After a 3 week period, try overall grip strength with the maximum weight you can hold at picture position for as long as you can.

    Captains of Crush make the best grippers. I bought most of my grippers from them

      Captain of crush- I see there are different ones from 60 lbs to 365 lbs.
      With which should I start? Afraid thst 60 lbs is too light

        If you can't try any grippers to approximate your current levels, you are gonna be better off to take a bit lighter one, rather than a too heavy one.
        If you are fit or do some sort of manual labor, so that you use your hands a lot, then yeah 60 lbs would be way to light.
        If you are on the stronger side already I would start with number 1 (140 lbs), if you think that is too much start with something like 100 lbs.
        Also keep in mind that coc grippers are more expensive, there are also some other reputable brands, that will be of similar quality, but cheaper (check this for some comparisons https://cannonpowerworks.com/pages/grip-strength-ratings-data).

        I've got them all from G (60lb) to 2 (195lb). T (100lb) is the one I use the most, you want to hit forearms in high reps with low rest. I like doing 20 reps of the T for 5 sets with 30 sec rests. Sometimes when I am burning out I hit the remaining reps with the S (80lbs) during the set. Also before the 5 sets I like doing a low rep heavy lift, I can do from 1-1.5 for 5ish reps

          captains of crush is the standard. every other good gripper is basically a coc clone built to nicer specs and quality. canon power works sells both the coc and other good grippers.

          Can you guys recommended alternatives for CAPTAINS OF CRUSH?
          35€ seems very expensive for just one. I want to buy a whole set with similar quality

            I looked into this and grippers seem to be one of the less important areas of grip strength and dont translate well to other stuff
            Wrist rollers, bar hangs then one arm bar hangs, and pinch gripping plates seems more important.

            I just got one from the company heavy grips for 15$ ,their 150 lb size seems well made and I'm happy.
            If your cheap the Chinese knock offs on Amazon would work. But less accurate in the weight rating

            If you are in EU go on amazon and search for RPM power grippers. The grippers are solid and they cost about 15€ each, or I think you can also buy a set of like 7 grippers for about 80€.
            I have three grippers from them and all of them are good, no issues with them and when I had a problem with one of them, I wrote them and they sent me a new one.

    do grippers even work? i don't want to subconsciously do some low-level exercise at home.
    unless it's for a specific sport, just train your forearms directly, no?

      that's a great way to start training your grip, but there is no progressive overload so your forearms will only get so big from it.

        not him but i fricked with grippers for ages and didn't get real hand strength til I started climbing.

        targeting your forearms is a meme. It's like doing calf raises

    I can deadlift 4pl8s with no straps and do a lot of rock climbing but can't close a #1 and I don't really get why. I think I might've unintentionally trained my open hand grip for most of the time i've lifted and my crush grip is just crap since I've never engaged it

        not the guy you're replying to but there's probably a fine line.
        how i hear the current science goes is low reps high weight is how to build connective tissue strength.
        so i think you have to edge up to the city limits of snap city but go no further.

          personally i would do very light resistance high reps for warm up then go for high resistance low reps in case of grippers so the joints and cartilage doesn't get fricked

    Buy the hardest one and keep trying to close it as much as you can, sooner or later you will close it

    I had a set that I lost when I moved. The knurling on them was completely fricked. It was shredding my already calloused hands. You could scratch yourself raw just by rubbing it on your arm. Can't remember the brand. I put duct tape on them.
