    Smile Best Hand Strengtheners

    Hello, does anyone have any recommendations for a great gripper or other related equipment? I'm looking for the perfect hand/finger/grip/wrist/forearm workouts. Any thoughts on Robert Baraban, Vatiz or IronMind's Captains of Crush? I do have the Captains of Crush trainer but it's time to move on. Great quality but the idea of buying a dozen of them inspires me to look into adjustable grippers. 

    Thanks,

    G  

    PS And is there anyone who has experience with the Sidewinder Revolution or Grip Twister? They focus on different muscles than the average gripper and offer more positions and ROM than rollers, or so I imagine. 
    PPS Bison 1M anyone? lol

    I like Captains of Crush. After I got them, I've never had the urge to try anything else.

    Hanging from a pull up bar and farmers carries work pretty well too and are more productive for general strength and fitness.

    I’ve had the SideWinder Pro Xtreme for a couple years now and absolutely love it.
    If you have the budget (it’s a bit pricey) you definitely wouldn’t be disappointed with it. It’s beautifully built and very durable... we’ve cranked and uncranked it probably thousands of times and it still feels the same as when it was new.
    Can get a tremendous forearm workout with it.

    I have the Grip Twister as well but honestly rarely use it. It’s very solid, a nice piece of equipment but for whatever reason I never really got in the habit of using it. Makes an amazing paperweight though ;-)

    I agree, if going down the hand gripper route then The CoC grippers are the best I've tried, but I rarely use them any more, I get most of the same benefits from Farmer's carries and thick grip bar training.

    It may be a coincidence but my forearm/elbo tendonitis has much improved since I stopped using the hand grippers.

    If you want a cheaper adjustable gripper consider this: https://www.amazon.com/Ivanko-SP-28-...ustomerReviews I have one, the only dislike for me is that the handles are small, but you should be able to wrap tape around them to thicken them up and make it easier to use.

    Doing thick bar/dumbbell work is quite helpful for grip. Consider wrapping washclothes around handles if you want to save money. Towel pullups are good in this regard as well.

    Wrist curls are also good for hand/forearm strength.

    Pinch grip is good for thumb strength (not trained with regular grippers). Depending on the style of plates you have they may or may not be well-designed for pinch work. If not, consider getting a couple of pieces of cardboard to put on the outside of the plates and grip that (again, if we are talking cheap options here).

    COC are the way to go. $25 each isn’t that much. Buy the three pack of 0.5, 1 & 2. The 1.5 I have feels like a 1.2.

    I bought the baraban adjustable on ebay for $50; it was a great buy. It's very versatile as is, and I'm planning on buying some of the attachments to make it more so.

    +1 on the CoC grippers. I have managed to collect T through 3 via eBay and FB Marketplace for less than $10/ea.

    The SideWinder by Sport Grips is the best forearm/grip trainer IMO.

    Unlike other roller devices, these work in both directions.

    I've had mine for many, many years so they're quire durable.

    but where is the best place to buy them???

    ^^ LOL at the two comments above.

    Captain of crush fan here too. I used to struggle doing pullups and I came to the realization that my grip was the limiting factor as I just couldn't hang from the pullup bar too long. Being a female, I figured I'd start with the trainer, and while I could close it, I found it challenging to close more than 2-3 times. I ended up getting a second Captain of Crush (somehow I managed to find the space) in "Sport". After about a week, the trainer started becoming progressively easier and I use the sport for warmups now. I like murser's idea of getting 2-3 of them and starting with the 0.5 (trainer), and the 1. They can be found both on Rogue and Amazon.

    I hear about tendonitis among grip users, is that a huge problem?

    That should not be a problem if you manage your training load properly. If it starts to become an issue, simply back off and it should go away. If you try to train through it then you're going to have problems.

    Another COC fan here. I also tried another option; I have a teenaged son who is a wrestler, so grip strength is important to him, but the knurling on the COC grippers was tearing up the skin on his hands. So I bought him some of these: https://www.amazon.com/IronMind-Agil...4298062&sr=8-3

    I'm sorry, but I'd just tell him to toughen up and get used to it. Unless he is doing crazy volume, which CoC doesn't recommend, or got a defective product, the knurl on CoC is less aggressive than many barbells.

    I have to keep my barbell callouses shaved down or they get torn. The middle pad on my left pinkie gets blisters and tears from COC.

    Don't overdo it, I guess that works for all exercises.

    Thick bar work will strengthen your hands faster and stronger than anything else I've tried.

    My wife just pulled the trigger on the COC beginner set of 3, from Rogue. I'm curious to see what they're like.

    They’ll be easy, and nicely made.

    If you have the budget (it’s a bit pricey) you definitely wouldn’t be disappointed with it. It’s beautifully built and very durable... we’ve cranked and uncranked it probably thousands of times and it still feels the same as when it was new.
    Can get a tremendous forearm workout with it.

    I have the Grip Twister as well but honestly rarely use it. It’s very solid, a nice piece of equipment but for whatever reason I never really got in the habit of using it. Makes an amazing paperweight though ;-)
    I agree with you, this is an excellent mediocre choice, I used this one too!)

    Sure, but that takes a while, so while he is toughening up his hands, he uses the smooth grippers to get his grip strength up at the same time.
