Default Grip Trainer Rankings

I know that I have seen a website that had the rankings for all the various grippers from the CoC sport all the way to CoC #4. I have googled my brains out to no avail. I searched the PM and CF board also.

I got my new Bonecrushers from Iron Woody and was able to close the Bonecrusher 250 with my right hand, not my left yet. I am trying to figure out where that ranks against the CoC's I have been using.

Derek,

Recently I've been thinking of getting CoC or Gladiator Grips. No idea is there's any significant difference.

I'm not about to crush any bones. Any recommendations?

Gripper training is pretty addictive. I love my CoC grippers. I bought the BoneCrusher's during a special that Iron Woody was running over Memorial Day. The sale was ridiculous, I think I got from 100 to 300 for $33.

If you don't mind spending the money I would definitely get at least one CoC just for the joy of it. I have their Starter and Trainer models. I believe that I can tell the difference in them and the BoneCrushers.

Depending on how strong your hands are I would start in the Gladiator's with the 100 or 150. MuscleDriver has a pretty good sale on them at $11 a piece. I would definitely buy 2, 1 easier that you can do sets of 10 with and one harder to work up to doing sets of 10 with.

Don't forget that you need to work your extensors also. Look at the package for hand health on the IronMind site. I use thick rubber bands for my extensor work.

thanx Derek.

I've got some sissy grippers. I'll have to try something more challenging.
