    Combat Grip Article from the Diesel Crew

    Not mine, it's from the Diesel Crew strongman team (http://www.dieselcrew.com).

    http://www.dieselcrew.com/articles/r...bat%20Grip.pdf

    This is probably one of the best articles done on training your grip for the martial arts and grappling. The Diesel Crew are some strong boys, all three of those who competed in the Strongest Man in Pittsburgh competition placed in the Top Five for their weight categories, and many are certified in at least the CoC #3 or #4. They're also regulars at martial arts shows and the Kumite Classics.

    I'm not sure of their martial arts backgrounds to be honest, but many of those on the Gripboard are into MAs as well. It wouldn't surprise me at all, Goju-Ryu has lots of good conditioning exercises.

    That's some great information; well presented.

    I might have missed it, but do they also suggest full body exercises, like squats/deadlifts, as further conducive to forearm strength/size, as per overall increase in testosterone levels? I know it seems almost too obvious to ask, but he makes some distinction between bodybuilding-type training and the stuff he presents, although they seem fairly similar to me.

    Check the other articles on their site, they're a wealth of information. They also have some videos on how to do various exercises you won't find other places (e.g. side press).

    Cool. My very first CoC came in the mail today.
    Closed the #1 right out of the package with either hand.

    Looking forward to seeing some improvement!

    I'll look around on some of the links for more information but does the low rep apply to someone training to be griping for a few hours continuouslly?

    That's good stuff, man. You should get a #2 as well. Even if you can't close it right off, just do negatives at first (cheat close it and hold it for as long as possible). If your grip is that strong already, it's a worthwhile investment.

    The only thing to be warned about though: they get addictive! :) Leave em out of your school bag, otherwise you'll be crushing it all day long.
