    Default Grip Strength Training Routine Suggestions?

    Was thinking of getting a set of Crush Grippper to train my grip. Can someone suggest a training routine or a site that has good info on training routines for grip?


    I'm thinking of buying the CoC beginner set and go up from there - http://www.roguecanada.ca/captains-o...h-grippers.php

    Train the grip like any other bodypart. Just remember you use grip strength everyday. So give your hands proper rest and recovery.

    John Brookfields mastery of hand strength is a great book to read.

    Personally I never go above 5 reps

    I like the CoC but not sure if they really increase grip strength. I recommend using straps on nothing lifts like lat pulldowns, but on things like Deadlifts I believe its good to go as heavy as you can with straps.

    they increase crush grip. Static grip is holding the bar which straps hurt

    Ok! So once a week grip training then? I also started on the Starting Strength routine as well which starts at 3x a week. So my plan would be to do a grip day on one of the off days initially and tweak from there.
