    Hi iron brothers,

    Buy the weakest one you can and work your way up. I was checking into it and everyone said that, don't quote me, "the number 1 is extremely difficult to start with." Or something to that effect, I can't remember the names but start with the lowest and work your way up.


    Good luck!

            how i train my grip is pretty simple, doesn't require you buying anything, and it's effective.

            take two plates (depending on your grip strength you might have to start as low as two ten pound plates) and put them together so that the smooth side is facing out. pinch them together with your fingers and hold the plates together above the ground for time (try for a minute or whatever). work your way up to longer times and progressively heavier weights.

            what i like to do is start with two 45's pinch hold them pinched together as long as possible and then drop to 35's and then to 25's. this is extremely painful
            It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.

              Mmm...I think it`s no need for buying tools just to training grip...here are some tips that has worked well for me...

              *On whatever heavy compound exercise [I like on Deadlift and Barbell Curl, but the others also work well], always squeeze your grip tightly on the 'bar'...

              *Do heavy Dumbell Hammer Curl also can increase grip`s strength...because the forearm work hard on that exercise...

              *You can train grip with some static squeeze on a pole, or something that you can place your palm confortably on it...

              Good luck...

                Try doing double overhand work as well. Don't use straps on exercises every so often...just some chalk. I would think you could use a trainer every so often like while watching tv, driving or maybe doing cardio. Just some ideas.

                  A wrist roller has worked very well for me. You can make your own.

                    I have a fairly good grip just from doing heavy lifts. Try not to use straps on EVERYTHING. Doing heavy deads will certainly strengthen your grip overtime, as well as any other heavy movements where you have to hold onto the weight for an extended period of time. Something on older freind of mine does, is he takes 110 lb dumbells and just holds onto them for a minute or hower long. Try using dumbells you can hold onto for a minute and progressively move the weight up... just some ideas.

                    PS, obviously some lifts require the use of straps, but OVER using them can be a bad thing IMO
