GripTraining FAQ »


/r/GripTraining is a subreddit for anyone from hardcore grip strength competitors to anyone looking for a stronger pair of mitts or bigger forearms (though the emphasis is on overall grip strength not solely aesthetics). Grip strength is incredibly useful in everyday life, often the weak point in overall strength training, useful in sports like climbing and martial arts, and great for injury prevention. Taken further there is the sport of grip training, the most popular of which is closing rated grippers but also includes events like pinch lifts, hub lifts, blob lifts, sledgehammer and lever lifts, etc and their respective training tools. Post your questions, routines, exercises, reviews of equipment you use, grip accomplishments, technique/training tips, grip sport news, grip videos/articles, etc.
