A new addition to the gym is The Captains Of Crush Hand Grippers. It is touted to be the best equipment to build hand strength. Training the grip is one of the most neglected component in training. A better grip strength leads to stronger hands. Any pulling movements like deadlifts, pullups, snatch, shrugs, etc, and likewise pressing movements like bench press and military press all need a stronger grip to lift more weights or perform more repetitions. I have observed that the moment you hold the bar, I mean the moment you grip the bar you can very well make-out whether you are going to make the lift or not. It basically indicates that a stronger grip is paramount in performing better.
Since I had heard many reviews about the Captains Of Crush Hand Grippers, I thought of investing on the equipment. The hand grippers come in different strengths levels. The ones that suits our strength level can easily be picked using the chart which is provided in the websites selling the product. I ordered a combo set of three in consideration on the requirement of my gym clients. I tried all the three of them and seriously felt that the 3rd level hand gripper kicked some butt. You can perform low, moderate, and high repetitions on the gripper. You can as well perform repetitions and time it, or even perform single repetitions using the strongest gripper. Various means and methods can be implemented to train with them, but generally training in the full range of motion is important for favorable results.
Enjoy the adjoining video, which was filmed in the gym. You can view all the three grippers which I have identified as 1, 2, and 3.
