    Product Review: Heavy Grip Hand Grippers

    Last time grip training came up someone posted a link to Heavy Grip's site. They have a special 5 pack of grippers (100lbs to 300lbs in 50lbs increments) for $70 including shipping so I grabbed myself a set.

    Well I've had them for a week and I love em. Very high quality, nice and solid. The metal handles have a nice feel. Great service too since I had to email them for a tracking number and got responses right away.

    http://www.heavygrips.com/


    One other thing I might mention. Try and test your grip strength before you order even if, like me, you don't think you have that strong a grip. I was able to close the 200 on both hands without too much straining the minute I started using them so the 100 and 150 won't see a lot of use. Ordering just the three I'm using to train would be more expensive than the package deal.

    I've been following the posted workouts on their site and I like em. Nice pump.

    You can use the lighter ones for higher rep warmup sets, right?

    Yah, but any $5 store bought gripper would work fine for that so it's a wash.

    Still, I like em a lot and you can grip train pretty much every day so they'll see a lot of use.

    I know what you're saying, but no $5 store bought hand gripper requires anywhere near 100lbs to close. I think the're more in the 40 to 50 lbs range for the better ones ($9.99).

    I think they're very similar, but the deal on a set of 5 is pretty good. I dig my Captains of Crush as well, but at least these don't look like cheap knockoffs like you would find at Sports Authority.

    Oh man I wanted to get this but international shipping is $28 :(

    Do you think you could get something similar in a regular sports shop?

    FWIW, really heavy grip training on a daily basis is a bad idea, and a great way to tendonitis. As addictive as it is, if I go heavy every day, my progress shitcans itself. I'm working on repping with an Ironmind #2, and can feel it deep in my tendons. Find something light for in-between days. Laci Szabo's Miami snowballs are great for that. Go to www.szaboinc.com for those, as well as some very eccentric knife designs.

    Agreed. I treat my grippers like a compound exercise, 3x a week tops.
