    I decided it was time to do that grip training thing but I was curious - for those of you who can rip books/phone books, how long did that take? Also, do you train them the same way you do other weights with reps/sets or is it just something you work on while you're fuckin around? I know I'm like a year late here, but... :o

    took me only a few minutes .

    they say ripping phonebooks is more of a trick than strength

    Interesting. Is it worth trying to read about first, or should I just start fucking with it?

    It definatly is, dont get me wrong it does require a certain amount of hand strength but it is definatly a event which requires special skills.
