    I'm sick and tired of slacking off with my grip work. I need some accountability. I also need some input. I know there are some experienced grip monsters on this board, and maybe you folks can help me out with both these aspects. I'm tired of losing mercy matches and arm wrestling tournaments to girl scouts.

    Tonight I started off with some CoC work. I did some warm up sets on my #1's. Then I did two singles per hand on the #2's (my left hand missed them). Afterwards, I did overcrushes on my #1's. I'm going to bring my #1's with me to the cafeteria so I can do some reps on the way.

    I'm no longer going to let my grip atrophy. My abs are in for it, too.

    While your signature tempts me to close your thread, I guess I can let it slide...

    Anyways, i have good success with high volume work with my grip (though I've never tried it with grippers to be honest... and it's mostly because I don't have an un-fucked number 1 to play with any more). and since you're ultimately looking for an increased single, I would do a lot of singles. How many? 100 per hand in 20 minutes. that's the kind of volume I'm talking about. Do a single with your left hand, pass it to your right, etc. Once you can crank out 90-100 per hand in 20 minutes, file down your gripper to make it tougher. I think you could get away with doing this once a week. this method however is unorthodox at best. Most gripper giants say that overcrushes are the way to go.

    so are you only interested in gripper stuff or should I tell you to buy a copy of "mastery of hand strength" a six lb sledge and some blockweights too?

    Lol I actually like his signature, it's good philosophy for life, however, a lot of people take it way literally.

    Yeah, I was just kidding. I like Hulk... in a completely hetero way.

    For grip, do you want to only do grippers? Since grip is a large area to cover, lots of different areas to train in. For grippers..if your going to do them, best to specilize in them only..Set a goal, work on it..then move on to something else.
