Come to think of it, thats probably the only grip training a lot of the Bozos do i.e. "wank".
Schofield or not, I've received so many such comments on Gorilla Grip - I used to ignore it "I m ean how can people be such prime lunks of grade A buffoons" - but apparently they are . So be it!
You make it sound like grip strength is just as important as breathing or more!
Yes, I do.
So be it!
(because it IS - any real doer will tell you that).
So, since the "it's too simple" nutters are fixing to wail up a storm - before they do, here are some more simple grip workouts.
They're even simpler, and even more brutal.
They dont even require you to GET into a pushup position (those morons that complain "were too big" so we cant do it - listen up) or hang (again, the fatsoz that claiming they're big but not fat - this is for you).
Nothing fancy at all ...
The first is an exercise mentioned in Gorilla Grip.
The Newspaper crush.
All it requires you to do is take a newspaper, or sheet of paper, and crumple and uncrumple it repeatedly into the TINIEST ball (Schofield? LOL!) you can imagine.
"Too simple", the nutjobs wail.
That it is!
but have you DONE it?
I repeat - have you DONE it?
Do it for 30 days straight, 2 minutes a day, and then get back to me with a report on your new found finger and grip (and forearm strength).
Then, you've got the "rice bucket" drills mentioned in Gorilla Grip (Advanced).
The more advanced it gets, the more simpler I make it - this one involves proper form yes, but you basically squeeze and unsqueeze RICE for as long as you can in a bucket ful of it.
No, Googling it won't get you the exact deal either (though you can try).
This, along with another oldie but goodie "the towel" (which I dont think I've mentioned in any of my books as yet) wil FRY the forearms beyond belief, and if you want to literally cry for mercy, combine with jumping rope - basic or not - as taught in Jump Rope Mania!
Too simple, the bozos blather.
Sure, you can build grip strength - to a degree by doing curls on the latest gizmo machine and cables and shables and forearms "shollers" or what not ...
None of that is necessarily bad, but functionally, that sort of grip doesnt even come close to what you need in real life.
Hence, the comments I get about having ...
An unnatural kung fu like grip!
I've never seen anyone with a pull like that to their grip!
You've got the pull! Once you pull him towards you, he's YOURS!
And so forth (so can YOU if you do the thing).
(and why so called 300 lb plus deadlifters have weak grips compared to yours truly and weak overall. Get real, fella. REAL training is REAL training!)
The ONLY one exercise I recommend with weights for the grip is the Farmer's Walk and not necessarily with dumbbells either. That builds solid grip/core strength.
The rest, well ...
Anyway, I'm out.
