    ok I just got my order from elitefts for my trainer, #1, #2, and #3.
    the #2 I can close twice with each hand but the #3 MAYBE halfway at most.
    I've been told do negatives but what are some other tips to help me close this bitch? GROUCH where u at? How long did it take to close the #3? :bowdown:

    good job. closing the #2 is a nice feat.

    It took me a year to finally close the 3# with an MM/Old rule set. Right now I cant even do that though after my month off and injured thumb. I would get a Beef Builder Super Master. Pretty much the most usefull gripper you'll own. Its the perfect inbetweener to the #2 and #3.

    If you want to keep with what you have for the time being. Work on getting some reps into your #2. Build your foundation up a bit more. Then or while working on reps with the #2. Start squeezing that #3. Sooner or later it will get closed.

    At this stage though you can pretty much throw the idea that any number of reps at a lower gripper means you can close a harder one. There are people who can pump 50 clicks out with a #2 but still cant close a #3.

    i bought just a #1. closed it after a week of casual attempts doing mostly negatives and static holds.


    i've been passing it out while on duty (I'm an RA in college) and challenging people to close it and i'll give 'em a prize. no guy has closed it and no girl has closed it with 2 hands.


    i just wish i could close it with my left hand now

    It would also be a really cool way to CUT THE FUCK OUT OF YOUR HAND and bleed everywhere, making you look like an idiot.

    unless you pop an animal pak first, at which point you'll grind the glass in your palm into powder, then you'll snort the gelatinous mixture of blood and glass dust and scream as you deadlift the entire bar and catapault all it's occupants into orbit

    Yup. You really need to for harder grippers. Unless your unnaturally strong like Dave Morton who closed the #3 with in like 3 weeks of training and was the last to cert on the #4. I've heard a story of him dipping a #3 in motor oil then closing it.

    Cans yes. bottle not likely.

    And I dont know of anyone who has blown up a can with one hand who didnt use a thigh to support it.

    how do the HG grippers correlate to the CoC ? as in which HG ones are about the same difficulty as which CoC's

    HGs are generally on the weaker side but

    #1 = ~HG200
    #2 = ~HG250
