Definitely get a membership on there too. It's a wealth of invaluable grip info.

I cant explain it, but yes. It works for me. when you grapple or spar or whatever, you'll never have to use all that strength so you'll never really max out.
your grip doesn't really work like other kinds of strength, it's waaay more complex than anything else
go over to ironmind.com and look at john brookfield's grip tips. they are awesome.

what technique do you use to bust the cans is a the multiple fast burst into the can while twisting of what?
I squeeze the **** out of it and then bend it like you would bend a horseshoe or nail or whatever, I use more wrist that hands in the motion. I never read anything about the multiple clicking method until after I had already poped one...... i think i can get through on in about 45 seconds. that's not really a feat I do to much though, I don't really do anything like ripping or bending or bursting on a regular basis. I like to train grip with things that I can use again the next time. buying all that stuf just to destroy adds up.

I basically grab it like I'm trying to choke the life out of it and do multiple fast squeezes, like it's somebody's neck and I'm throttling them. As soon as that crease forms around the middle, I start squeezing the crease and it usually blows right in the middle.

After doing some of the sandbag excercises suggested, I would like to quote part of another article on the Diesel Crew site by Rick Walker:HAND THERAPY
Hot cold soaks. Open and close your hands repeatedly in hot water
for 2 minutes, then cold water for 2 minutes. Go back and forth
for as long as needed.
Wear mittens to bed to keep your hands warm all night!
Rotate dexterity balls, or ball bearings, all directions and with
palms up and down.
Roll up a towel or newspaper in your hand. Start with your hand
palm down grasping just a small corner of the towel/paper in your
finger and thumb and roll it until it is in your hand completely.
