    Take a regular gripper you can get at a dollar store for a dollar, and put a hose clamp on the spring. Instant captain of crush.

    You can do it with all grippers.

    Wow, some of that looks pretty sweet, I sketched out alot of stuff I wanna make, cause some of it is pretty simple, clubbells, wrist rollers etc. But havn't seen some of the others.

    I may try the hose clamp, I think I read about some other people using them. However, it still seems like using it on a storebought gripper still isn't the same as a higher CoC :P But can help to bridge the gap.

    Edit: Forgot to add, instead of IMTUGS, using the grippers, u can also use pony clamps to train a few fingers at a time as well as pinch and thumb strength.

    Holy crap, I'm getting a hose clamp tonight after rolling and retrofit my ghay everlast grip into a manly one!!! :viking: My fear is to get an high-caliber IM and still not being able to use it efficiently (*** looking at my girly hands and weep in shame ***)

    I like the "thickbar" rollers as well, and that "aikido grip" tool looks interesting... don't know if I'd put the effort to make one, even if I'm a do-it-yourselfer.

    Hmmm, dude, at least in my case, when I go heavy with a deadlift, I need to use one hand supinated and one pronated to hold the bar, and my back and hips give up before my hands do.

    However, using a lesser load with both hands in a pronated position will hit the hands and forearms. In that form, the hands will give in before the back and hips do.

    I forgot to add, heavy shrugs with a barbell being lifted from waist level, or better yet, static holds with very height poundage, that will hit the grips/forearms.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    El Macho, a little do it yourself will make the deadlift easier and harder at the same time. Get a 2x6 about 2-3 feet long. Make and fashion some hooks to it to hook the bar. Then pinch grip the 2x6 with your thumb and fingers. No need to reverse hand positions. Then do your deads. Regular deadlifts involve the entire body from heel to shoulders, so isolating your forearms this way should help hips and legs.:new_smile

    Yeah, saw that and other ideas from an old issue of Strength and Health mag. It was about a guy with the world's strongest forearms and what he did to improve grip. That and the pinch grip chin-ups from a floor/ceiling joist. He used to demonstrate by ripping NYC phonebooks in half. He was only 165lbs too.

    If your not into making stuff try this. Standing upright, pinch grip a 45lb weight plate. Then let it go and pinch grip catch it with your other hand b4 it hits the floor, or your foot. A couple thousand reps b4 meals should do it.:read2:

    Did I miss someone saying how DIY wrist rollers are awesome?

    Because they are.
    You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.
