I have worked with a LOT of people over the years on their Gripper form, and the biggest thing I see with them is TECHNIQUE ISSUES.
We need to talk about this RIGHT NOW.
Technique is EVERYTHING.
You can throw everything else out.
If your technique is off when you try to close a gripper, you are reducing your chance for a successful close by AT LEAST HALF and maybe more.
The number one thing I see people doing is they place the gripper wrong in their hand right from the very beginning.
Specifically, they place the Gripper too deep in their hand…
…so WHY is this a PROBLEM?
Well, think about it this way.
How far do you usually miss by when you fail on a gripper attempt?
My guess is that you probably miss by around 1/4 inch.
Maybe it’s an 1/8th, maybe 3/8ths, but it’s probably right around there.
Well, in my experience people are placing the gripper between 1/4 and 3/8 of an inch TOO DEEP INTO THEIR HAND.
This is a problem because the farther the back handle is in their hand, the farther their fingers have to move the front handle in order to complete the close!
If you make the adjustment on the placement of the Gripper, your hands will have a bit more gas left in the tank because they won’t have to work over such a long distance.
This one change in your form could give you just the boost you need to finally close that gripper you have been trying to close.
And that is just one TINY technical adjustment having to do with how you place the thing in your hand.
Imagine what else you will pick up on when you pick up CRUSH: Total Gripper Domination today.
CRUSH is a two-disk DVD that covers all the ins and outs of Gripper Training and it is loaded with technical information that you might not be thinking about.
I kid you not, I have seen guys going from missing the COC #1 to coming within 1/4 inch of closing the COC #2.5, just by making the right technical adjustments.
