Gripper Training: Harder to Close Grippers with Left HandFriday, September 20th, 2013
Why is it Harder to Close Grippers Left Handed?
One viewer on my YouTube Channel recently asked me all about this, something to the effect of:
- “Jedd, why is it harder for me to close my grippers with my left hand? I am even with everything else and I have double-checked my technique, but still my left hand lags behind on Grippers. Do I have some kind of strength imbalance in my off-hand?”
Grippers are awesome but they can also be frustrating as Hell too. Sometimes, this frustration can make someone wonder what in the world they are doing wrong, and even make them think that they might have something wrong with their technique or that they have a hand strength imbalance.
However, that is not the case at all. As I explain in this video, this kind of thing happens to just about everyone, including people who are left handed and generally stronger with their left hand on other types of Grip Training.
I explain exactly why grippers feel tougher to close with the Left Hand in this video:
Why Grippers are Tougher to Close with the Left Hand
Naturally, this is not the only frustration I hear about in regards to grippers. From gripper technique, to frequency of gripper training, to designing gripper programs, I have heard it all.
And I have a great product that will address all of these concerns and more. It’s called CRUSH: Total Gripper Domination, and it is the go-to source on Gripper Training. If you train grippers and don’t have this DVD, you are damaging your progress.
Check out my Gripper Training DVD today. You will eliminate your frustrations, feel better about your training, and will set some very impressive PR’s.
Recent feedback on CRUSH from David Macpherson:
CRUSH DVD: Stunned Amazement
“Hello Jedd, just thought I’d send you a message to say hello. You asked the other day what things we’ve done to improve our training this year…For my gripper training the best thing was your Crush DVD. From being a millimeter or 2 from closing the COC2 with my right hand to closing it twice and holding in closed in stunned amazement. Now I’m a millimeter or so from closing it with my left so hopefully it shouldn’t be long. Anyway, keep up the good work. Take care. – David Macpherson”
Imagine how good it feels when you make the adjustments you need to, set that goal gripper in your hand and smash it shut for the first time. It’s happened over and over when people watch CRUSH: Total Gripper Domination.
All the best in your training.
