Gymchat 181 - Training With Grippers II

I love a dose of Gripper work.

UPDATE 8 Aug 2012 : Sincerest apologies for this, but we've unfortunately had to reschedule this one. Will let everyone know during the week what the new date is.

Sorry about that.



A Quick Invitation : One of the first strength-training tools I can remember seeing my dad use was a pair of hand grippers, purchased from a local sporting-goods store. Fantastic things.

This week we're discussing these wonderful pieces of equipment - if you're ready to get serious about your grip work, join us for Training With Grippers II.

See you there.

We've talked a lot about grip training over the years - everything from DIY Grip Tools to Pinch Grip Training. Love it.

This week we're returning to a personal favourite, the world of hand grippers. What to get, what to do and so on. And if you've got any specific questions on your own gripper work, fire them in. We'll get through as many as we can.

Helping us explore this fascinating topic is none other than certified Mash Monster, Strongman and Personal Trainer Matt Hunt. Fantastic.

Brilliant device. If your shoulders aren't quite as flexible as you'd like, grab The Rotater. Love it.
Already got one? Looking for something specific? Swing by the Straight to the Bar Store. It's all in there.

Quick update on last week's gymchat : Thanks once again to everyone who took part in the discussion : Arm Training. Some superb ideas in there.

For those who missed out on the conversation, here's the transcript. Was a great one.
